One of Czech tradition meals is the fried cauliflower served with boiled potatoes and tartar sauce. But I can not even remember when I prepared it for the last time. And it is something because it was one of my often eaten children meals after all which I helped to prepare in my mom’s kitchen.

A head of cauliflower in my fridge and my planed departure called for little nostalgia. But would’n it be nice to put a little bit of an asian kick? A great summer dish was born.
