    Cauliflower fritters with herb mayo

    • Preparation time: 20 minutes
    • Cooking time: 20 minutes
    • Total time: 40 minutes

    Serves: 4 as a starter or snack

    Ingredients

    170g gram flour
    1 tsp nigella seeds
    1 tsp caraway seeds
    sunflower oil, for frying (about 1.25 litres)
    350g trimmed cauliflower (about ¼ cauliflower), finely chopped
    1 red onion, finely chopped
    50g spinach, shredded
    130g mayonnaise
    ½ x 25g pack mint, leaves finely chopped
    ½ x 20g pack dill, finely chopped
    1 lemon, cut into wedges 

    Method

    1. Tip the flour into a bowl, then stir in the spices and 225ml water; season and set aside. Pour the oil into a medium pan to a depth of 3cm; set over a medium-high heat. Put the cauliflower in the batter with the red onion and spinach; stir to combine.

    2. Once the oil is very hot, carefully add heaped tablespoons of the mixture, about 4 or 5 at a time, so as not to overcrowd the pan. Slightly flatten each spoonful, and fry for about 5 minutes, moving them a little, until deep golden and crisp. Using a metal slotted spoon, transfer to a tray lined with kitchen paper, then sprinkle with a little flaky sea salt. Repeat with the remaining batter, adding more oil if necessary.

    3. In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise and most of the chopped herbs; season. Scatter the remaining herbs over the dip, then serve with the fritters and lemon wedges.
