Fried Cauliflowers and Carrots

(Karnabahar ve Havuc Kizartmasi)

Fried Cauliflowers and Carrots
Small cauliflower, peel off stem leaves, separate the florets
1 large carrot, peeled, sliced diagonally
1/2 cup sunflower oil

Sauce to fry:
2 eggs
2 tablespoonful flour
1 tbsp rice flour
1/4 cup water or beer

Sauce #1:
1 cup yogurt
1-2 cloves garlic, smashed with salt

Sauce #2:
1 lemon juice
1 tsp crushed pepper
1-2 garlic cloves, smashed with salt
Half bunch of mint, or 1 tbsp dry mint

First bring to boil some water with salt. Boil the florets and carrots for 2-3 minutes and drain.

Mix the frying ingredients in a small bowl. Dip the florets and carrots individually and fry them equally in sunflower oil. Place them on a paper towel to soak up extra oil.

Place them on a service plate. Prepare the two different topping sauces and place them in two separate small bowls. Serve the fried cauliflower and carrots on the side with the sauces.

Meal Ideas:
- Tarhana Soup, Lamb with Grape Leaves and Gullac.

Hi Binnur,

This was my mother's way of getting me to eat cauliflower! Thank you for the recipe. I wonder if you can prepare zucchini sticks in a similar batter much like how they serve it at pubs?

Sevgili Binnur,

I haven't come across any recipe of yours that I didn't want to try. I love Cauliflower and I happen to have all of the ingredients for the dish on hand so I'm going to make this now! It's also nice that you have the site in both languages - although my Turkish isn't that good yet I have printed recipes in Turkish so I can practice ; )
