  • 1 head of Cauliflower approx. 4 cups of florets
  • 1 Cup Milk Vegan can use milk substitutions or even water will do
  • 1/2 Cup Rice Flour (All Purpose Flour/ Maida will work too - But for Gluten tolerant)
  • 2 tsp Garlic powder
  • 1 tsp Cumin powder
  • 1 tsp Paprika or Chili powder
  • ¼ tsp Salt
  • ¼ tsp Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 Cup Breadcrumbs (I used my homemade, store bought is also fine and one can use gluten free bread)
  • 1 tbsp Oil for spraying or drizzling

For the sauce:

  • 1/3 Cup Honey
  • 1/4 Cup Sriracha
  • 1/4 Cup Ketchup
  • 1 tbsp Sesame seeds optional


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C. Line a baking tray with Parchment paper.
  2. In the mean time, wash and cut Cauliflower into bite size pieces or florets.
  3. Mix the milk, Rice flour, Garlic powder, cumin powder, paprika, salt and black pepper and make a smooth batter.
  4. Place the breadcrumbs in another bowl.
  5. Dip each floret or a batch of 4-5 florets in cauliflower , shake off the excess batter and then dip into the breadcrumbs.
  6. Roll the breadcrumbs all over and line it on the parchment paper.
  7. Spray or drizzle a tsp of oil all over
  8. Bake it until crispy and golden, turning in between. For me it took around 45 minutes, It depends on your oven, so do keep an eye after 20-25 minutes.
  9. Alternatively one can even deep fry until golden on medium.
  10. Once baked, in a large bowl, Add the honey, sriracha, and ketchup and give it a quick mix.
  11. Remove cauliflower wings from oven and toss in the honey sriracha sauce.
  12. Sprinkle with sesame seeds if desired. Serve with any sauce of your choice or enjoy as is.
