  1. In a large mixing bowl, thoroughly combine the corn starch, flour, baking powder, salt and sesame seeds.

  6. Picking up each piece at a time, shake off any excess batter and carefully lower into the oil, making sure to not overcrowd the pot.
  7. Deep fry for 3 minutes then remove and let it rest for 1 minute.
  8. Deep fry again for 3-4 minutes or until golden brown. 
  9. While the cauliflower is hot, add to the sauce mixing bowl and thoroughly coat each piece.
  10. Transfer the Korean Fried Cauliflower to a serving bowl and top with spring onions and sesame seeds. 
  11. Enjoy!
