Cauliflower Fritters Stir Fry- T-Fal Actifry

Battered Cauliflower air fried in T-Fal Actifry and stir fried in an amazing sauce…

If you shy away from deep frying like me, T-Fal Actifry will be a great addition to your kitchen. Before owning an Airfryer, for deep frying I always used less oil or went with pan frying or baking or grilling. T-Fal Actifry is just phenomenal, now I can make all the crispy snacks that I love in very less oil, as a result I’ll have less calorie intake. Healthy frying it is!

I’ve been trying a few simple recipes in the Actifry like fries, sweet potato fries, corn on the cob and also made peri-peri seasoned chicken drumsticks (recipe on its way).

This cauliflower fritter stir fry is one of my favorite vegetarian appetizers, this is an Indo-Chinese recipe. Cauliflower is first dipped in a rice/corn starch batter and air fried till crispy and then stir fried in an amazing soy-honey sauce. A must try and will be loved by everyone.
