    3/4 tsp Baking Powder
    1 tsp Salt
    2 large Egg, fresh, whole, raw
    3 tbsp Soy Sauce
    1 tbsp Rice Vinegar
    1/2 cup Canola Oil
    1 large Cauliflower, cut into florets

    2 tsp Sesame Oil
    1/4 cup, chopped Onions

Whisk together the first seven ingredients. Thin the batter with a little water if needed.
Heat the oil in a wok until very hot.
Dip each piece of cauliflower fully into the batter then place in the oil.
Pan fry the cauliflower until golden on all sides, about 4 to 5 minutes.
Remove from the oil and drain on absorbent paper towels.

In a medium pot, heat the sesame oil and add the onions, garlic, ginger and red pepper flakes and cook 1 to 2 minutes.
Add the soy sauce, water, rice vinegar and mirin and simmer for 5 minutes.
In a separate bowl, whisk the corn starch and sugar to combine. Pour in about 1/4 cup of the sauce and stir until the mixture is smooth and lump free.
