  1. Preheat oven to 200°C/180°C fan-forced. Line a large baking tray with baking paper. Arrange florets, in a single layer, on tray, then bake for 40 minutes or until tender. Set aside to cool for 15 minutes.
  2. Whisk half of the flour with 3/4 cup water in a shallow bowl until smooth. In another shallow bowl, combine remaining flour, seasoning and paprika. Season well.
  3. Dip florets, one at a time, in batter, allowing excess to drip off. Dip in paprika mixture to coat. Repeat process to double-coat florets. Place back on tray in a single layer.
  4. Pour enough oil into a large frying pan to come 3cm up side of pan. Heat over medium heat. Working in batches, cook florets for 3 minutes, turning occasionally, or until golden brown. Drain florets on a paper towel-lined plate.
  5. Spread bun bases with half each of the sauce and mayonnaise. Top with lettuce, pickles, onion and florets. Drizzle with remaining sauce. Spread bun tops with remaining mayonnaise. Sandwich with bun tops and serve.
