CAULIFLOWER WITH MAYONNAISE AND SOUR CREAM

Mayonnaise and sour cream are popular ingredients in Georgian cuisine. In this family recipe we show how to make a delicious spicy mayonnaise and sour cream sauce for a fried cauliflower dish. Our cauliflower is coated with cornmeal, which is traditionally used in Georgia to make Mchadi and Gomi.
