Gobi Manchurian

I prepared this along with Fried rice for lunch..Gobi Manchurian is my favourite and I always order this in restaurants..I decided to make it at home and it turned out really well..Here is how I prepared it..



Cauliflower - one medium sized flower cut into florets
Onion - 1 small sized
Bell Pepper(red/green) - 1/2 cup
Maida / All purpose flour - 3 tablespoons
Cornflour - 3 tablespoons
Red chilli powder - 1 teaspoon
Ginger garlic paste - 1 tablespoon
Tomato sauce - 3 tablespoons
Soyasauce - 1 teaspoon
Chilli sauce - 1 teaspoon
Soda - 1/2 teaspoon (optional)
Curry leaves - 1 small sprig
Oil for deep frying
Salt to taste


Wash the cauliflower florets thoroughly in warm salty water in order to remove all germs present and drain them..
Mix the corn flour and maida together and make a thick batter adding 1 tablespoon water..Then add 1 teaspoon ginger garlic paste,half teaspoon red chilli powder,soda and salt...
Now coat the cauliflower florets with this batter and deep fry them in oil..The oil should not be too hot otherwise the cauliflower will not cook properly on the inside...
Drain the fried florets in paper towels..

In another vessel, take some oil and add the onions and fry till they turn translucent..Add 1 teaspoon ginger garlic paste and bell pepper and saute for a few seconds..Then add the red chilli powder,salt and curry leaves..
Add the soy sauce,chilli sauce and tomato careful while adding the sauces..
If added in excess it might spoil the taste of the manchurian..
Mix 1 tablespoon of corn flour in about half a cup of water or depending on the consistency required and add it to the cooked mixture..
Finally add the deep fried florets and stir once..
Garnish with chopped spring onions and cilantro and serve hot..
Goes well with fried rice and naans..
