Choosing a good cauliflower is as important as cooking it, and you can look at things like the colour and consistency to find the best cauliflower in the supermarket. If you hate the smell of cauliflower, you can get rid of it as soon as you get home.


Before you start preparing the baked cauliflower, you will need to properly clean and cut the cauliflower into small pieces, though the latter can also be done after boiling it. Make sure you have cleaned the cauliflower thoroughly, so that there are no small insects or any type of dirt.


The next step is to cook the cauliflower before frying it. To do this, you can steam it using a steamer or follow the traditional method of boiling it in water. In the latter case, we suggest some tricks to not smell the cauliflower when cooking, as it tends to give off an unpleasant odor.


The cauliflower should be tender but not falling apart, because then it will be difficult to fry it properly. Once cooked, strain the cauliflower in a colander to remove all the water.


Now it's time to prepare the batter for the cauliflower: there are many different ways to make this vegetable batter. While some use egg and flour, others prepare a paste by adding water, and there are those who make the batter with a little beer or even use breadcrumbs. Choose the one that you want and pour the batter over all the pieces of cauliflower.


Once the cauliflower is covered in batter, fry it in a pan with olive oil. Before you fry it, make sure the oil is hot for cauliflower to be crispy.


When the batter is golden, you can remove the cauliflower from the pan with a slotted or wooden spoon. Place them on a paper towel to remove excess oil.
