Hi. I'm John McLamore, president and CEO of Masterbuilt and the author of "DADGUM That's Good!" and "DADGUM That's Good, Too!" cookbook. Today we're going to take a traditional recipe, just regular old cauliflower and make it into something dadgum good and deep fry it and give it a yogurt dipping sauce. So to get started we're going to take two large eggs, we're going to combine that with one and quarter cup of milk. Combine those two together and then we're going to take our dry seasonings which is self rising flower, oregano, cayenne pepper, paprika, and kosher salt. Now you're going to mix this together, the dry ingredients and we're going to add our milk and eggs together and blend this together, mix it up to create the batter for the cauliflower. Now it's great to use the whisk because you want to get all of the clumps out and get it completely blended together. OK. We've got our batter mixed up here and what you want to do is take your cauliflower and we're going to add in four or five, OK. The recommendation is have your basket already down into the oil because that batter will actually stick to your basket. And you want to take some tongs and lower each one in, get the batter off into the oil. We're going to fry these for five to six minutes until golden brown. And while they're frying, show you a really really nice dipping sauce. OK. While the cauliflower is frying for five to six minutes let's talk about a great yogurt sauce. OK. We're going to start out with plain yogurt, going to have some diced cucumbers, we've got some minced garlic, we've got some mint, we've got some dill, we've got some lemon juice, a little olive oil, and some kosher salt. Now we're going to blend all of these together into our yogurt. We got our fresh garlic, and our mint, and our dill, lemon juice, olive oil, and our kosher salt. You want to blend all of that together. So what you want to do is you want to have this sit in the refrigerator and chill for about an hour, but no more than one day. This is a great recipe because you've got a nice little kick with the cauliflower mixed with a cool yogurt dip for a dadgum good recipe. Again, I'm John McLemore, with Masterbuilt and Dadgum That's Good.
