  • 1Place half of the plain flour in a large bowl, add water and whisk, it should be a thin consistency.
  • 2Mix together the remaining plain flour and rice flour, old bay, baking powder and pinch salt.
  • 3Dip the broccoli and cauliflower pieces in the wet mixture then coat with the dry mix. Place on a rack to rest.
  • 4Heat oil to 180°C. Fry the broccoli and cauliflower in batches for about 5 minutes or until crisp and brown.
