  1. Step 1

    Cook cauliflower in a large saucepan of salted boiling water for 1 min. Drain. Combine rice flour, cornflour, cumin and smoked paprika in a bowl. Add the cauliflower and toss to coat.
  2. Step 2

    Add enough vegetable oil to a wok to reach a depth of 5cm. Heat to 180°C over medium-high heat (oil is ready when a cube of bread turns golden in 15 seconds). Cook the cauliflower, in batches, for 3-4mins or until golden brown and just cooked through. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel to drain. Toss the cauliflower in the sweet paprika.
  3. Step 3

    Combine tahini, yoghurt and lemon juice in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Step 4

    Divide cauliflower among serving plates and sprinkle with parsley leaves. Serve with mixed salad leaves, bread, lemon wedges and the yoghurt sauce.
