Spicy Buffalo Cauliflower Bites

Actual Buffalo wings are from chicken. Story goes like this, when one restaurant owner in Buffalo, NY had unexpected guests in their restaurant at the time of closing. They wanted to feed them something fast and tasty so she came up with the idea. She took the chicken wings which normally they don't use for cooking only for stock, tossing them in spicy cayanne pepper sauce and deep fry it and served it with Blue cheese sauce. Everyone loved it and hence the name. Since We are vegetarians, I used Cauliflower to make this. Same way you can use chicken, seafood, paneer , tofu. broccoli, potatoes. This vegetable is now not only for curries or paraths. Before I made Cauliflower crust pizza cheese sticks. I  made it in two batches, one mildy spicy and one extra spicy for me. You can always adjust as per your taste.

This is for my mom, we both love spicy food and I am her copy too in looks. My mom is an excellent cook in her own way. For us she is still the best in every way, its cooking or caring, no one can do what she is doing for me and my sister and ofcourse our dad too.

    1 head cauliflower
For the batter:
Dash of Hot Sauce
1  cup Butter milk
½ c. white rice flour
½ c. water
Salt and pepper to taste

For the Buffalo sauce:
¼ c. Hot Sauce
¼ c. canola oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Method :

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

For the Batter, put all its ingredients in a bowl and mix together.

Break down the cauliflower into smaller pieces, bite size. Dip the pieces in the batter. Make sure it’s completely covered with the batter.

On a baking pan covered with baking paper place the dipped cauliflower and bake for 15-20 minutes.

For the sauce, put all its ingredients in a bowl and mix together.

After the cauliflower are out of the oven, sprinkle the sauce over it and bake again for 5 minutes more.

Serve it hot with Celery and Blue cheese dressing.
