Gobi /Cauliflower Manchurian


Gobi Manchurian

A popular Indian style chinese dish, it can be served as a snack or as an appetizer. I ate gobi manchurian many times on the streets of Mumbai but never tried it at home, I knew what all ingredients are required for this recipe. Last weekend I tried this dish at home (and served as an appetizer) for the first time and pretty amazed to see the way it came out.

This recipe will serve 2 people


Here is the handy list of the ingredients:-

2 cups of cauliflower cut into florets
2tsp ginger garlic chilly paste
1/3 cup corn starch
2 tbsp rice flour
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 chopped green bell pepper
2 green chilly chopped (optional)
2 cloves of garlic chopped
1 tsp minced ginger
2 tsp chilly garlic hot sauce
2 tsp soya sauce
1 tsp vinegar                                                                                        
Coriander leaves chopped
Salt to taste
Oil

Method:-
Prepare a batter of corn starch, ginger garlic chilly paste and salt adding necessary water. Batter should be made a little thick, otherwise it doesn’t coat well on the cauliflower florets. Heat oil in a big pan or wok, dip each floret in the batter and gently put it into the oil. Fry until it turns golden brown in color. Drain into a tissue paper and keep them aside.
Now heat 2-3 tbsp oil in another pan, add chopped garlic and ginger saute it for few seconds, now add chopped onion and green bell pepper and stir fry it on a high flame for few minutes.  Once they are cooked turn the heat to medium and add salt, soya sauce, chilly- garlic hot sauce and vinegar. Mix them well, check for the salt and add the gobi florets. Mix them together until all the florets are well coated with the sauce. Add coriander leaves and toss it well for few minutes. Serve immediately.

Enjoy !!
