Cauliflower Manchuria

What you need: 

1 kg cauliflower, cut into big chunks
2 cm ginger
5 garlics
6 green chillies, ground to a paste
1 teaspoon aniseed
enough salt
enough corn
oil for frying

What you do: 

1. Bring a pot of water to boil. Parboil cauliflower and drain the water away.
2. Put the ground ingredients with the salt into a bowl and mix well.
3. Rub the ground ingredients onto the cauliflower pieces and leave aside to marinate for about 1 hour.
4. Heat oil for frying.
5. Dust marinated cauliflower pieces with cornflour and deep fry till golden brown. Drain on absorbent paper.
6. Serve hot preferably with soy sauce as a dip.
Note: If chillies are not available, use 2 tsps of ground paprika or 1 tsp ground black pepper. This is a cross between an Indian and Chinese dish. Good for parties as finger food. Any comments any one?

Fantastic!!  A really great snack :)  I added a few miscellaneous spices I had from China to give it a bit of a kick, and it was wonderful!  I'm definitely going to be making this again!
