3 cups fresh cauliflower, cut into one to two inch tree-like pieces
1 egg, beaten well
1/4 cup flour or water chestnut flour, or a mixture of both
1 Tablespoon chili paste with garlic
1 teaspoon black bean paste with garlic
3 cups oil
3 slices fresh ginger, minced
1 green chili, seeded and minced
1/2 large green pepper, cut into one-inch pieces
1/2 large sweet red pepper, cut into one-inch pieces
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon salt and white pepper, mixed
1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
1 Tablespoon minced fresh coriander
1. Mix cauliflower pieces, beaten egg, flour, and two tablespoons water.
2. Heat oil, remove about half the cauliflower pieces from the flour batter, allow some draining, then deep fry them until very light brown. Drain and set them on paper towels. Repeat with the rest of the cauliflower. Set aside the oil for this and other uses, after straining it.
3. Mix all the remaining ingredients. Heat one tablespoon of the remaining oil, and fry this mixture for one minute, then add cauliflower, stir well, and remove all to a bowl and serve.
