    Beautifully, evocatively written , Raymund :) ! Even this gal who never ever batters or deep-fries is smiling and hoping others will enjoy!

  3. This really looks great, although I just don’t do a lot of deep frying.

  4. I do a little deep frying on special occasions, and I would definitely make these little golden nuggets. We are huge fans of cauliflower — we use it as a main course at least once a week. Thanks for the batter — I’m sure that’s what makes these so special!

    Don’t think I’ve tried deep frying cauliflower. Usually, I will just boil or stir-fry as a vegetable dish.
