Bangkok 96 Street Food’s Gluten-Free Crispy Broccoli Recipe  


1 broccoli crown

9 oz Thai Feast Tempura mix

½ cup water

1 cup cooking oil for frying

Dipping sauce:

½ cup mayo

2 tbsp ketchup

1 tbsp lime juice

2 tbsp cane sugar


Heat cooking oil in a medium saucepan. To make the batter, combine the tempera powder and water. Stir and set aside. When oil is ready, dip the broccoli florets into the batter and shake off excess batter. Deep fry battered florets on medium heat, for about a minute or until golden and crisp. Rest the fried broccoli on a plate with a paper towel, to absorb the oil. Combine the sauce ingredients for a sweet and tangy dip.
