Gobi Manchurian - though a Chinese dish is a heart-throb of we Indians!!

I like this dish a lot and so does my son... Hence tried making this @ home...


Cauliflower- 1 - medium
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Chilly powder - 1/2 tsn
pepper powder - 1/2 tsn
Ginger garlic paste - 1/4 tspn
Salt to taste

For Batter

All purpose flour /Maida - 1/2 cup
Corn flour/Rice powder - 1/4 cup (i used rice powder)
Salt to taste

For sauce

Oil -2 tbsn
Onion-1 large
Ginger -1 small piece chopped
garlic-6-8 cloves chopped
Soy sauce-2 tsn
Tomato Ketchup-2tsn
Vinegar -2tsn
Spring onion chopped 1 bunch
Salt to taste


Soak the cauliflower in hot water for 2 minutes. It helps remove pesticides and kill the germs if any.

Cut the cauliflower in medium size, add turmeric powder into it and boil it.

Cook it for 5 minutes and drain and keep it aside.

Mix the Cauliflower with ginger-garlic paste, chilly powder, salt, pepper powder and keep it aside for 10 minutes. This helps the ingredients to get soaked into the cauliflower pieces.

Chop the onion, ginger, garlic, spring onions and keep them aside.

Mix maida, Corn flour/Rice flour and salt with little water to make a batter (batter must a bit free flowing - such as that of a bhajji batter)

Dip the cauliflower florets in the batter completely and fry them. Once they become golden brown color, remove from oil, drain the oil and put it in paper towels.

Take the frying pan and pour 3-4 tblspn oil. Once the oil is hot, add the chopped onions and saute well.  Add a spoon of tomato sauce, soya sauce, vinegar and mix it well. 

Then add spring onions, ginger and garlic. Saute these together well. 

Then add the fried gobi and mix well. 

Decorate with some chopped spring onions.

This is the dry version of gobi manchurian... To be served as a starter or with Fried rice, noodles etc.
