Cauliflower Fritters

Cauliflower Fritters

1 cauliflower (about 600g), cut into florets
3 eggs, separated
1 tsp sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1 cup plain flour
200ml water
1 onion, finely grated
3 garlic cloves, crushed
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp turmeric
1 cup flat-leaf parsley, chopped
About 1 cup olive oil, for shallow-frying

To serve:
Sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Handful chopped flat-leaf parsley
Lemon wedges (optional)

Blanch the cauliflower florets in boiling salted water for 1-2 minutes, until just tender. Refresh under cold water.

To Make the Batter: whisk the egg yolks, add the salt and season with pepper. Add the flour, a little at a time, alternating with a little water, and whisk continually until all flour and water has been incorporated. Stir through the onion, garlic, cumin, coriander, turmeric and parsley and set aside. In another bowl, whisk the egg whites until soft peaks form. Fold egg whites through the batter mixture in two batches with a metal spoon.
