Gobi Manchurian (Dry)

Gobi (Cauliflower) Manchurian is one of the “can’t avoid at any cost ” veg starter when you go to a restaurant. Why shouldn’t we make this dish at home with better health and taste as added benefits. I decided to try out this dish at home once again. ( As my first trial couple of years back was a disaster.It was soggy and sticky)This time i wanted it to be crispy and perfect and this time it was just out of the world.;)
Here’s the recipe for you.
1. Cauliflower – 1 medium sized
2. Ginger garlic paste – 1 tsp, Minced ginger and garlic- i tsp each
3. salt – to taste
4. Chilli powder – 1/2 tsp
5. Oil for deep frying
6.soya sauce – 1 tbsp
7. Red chilly sauce – 1 tbsp
8.Tomato sauce – 2 tbsp
9. Vinegar- 1 tbsp
10. sugar- 1 tspn
11. onion- 1 small finely chopped
Cut the cauliflower into medium sized florets and clean them by dipping them in hot water for 10 minutes. Wash and keep aside.
Fisrt let’s make the batter ready for frying the cauliflower pieces.
For the batter
maida – 1/2 cup
cornflour – 1/4 cup
Rice flour – 1 tbsp
salt – to taste
Black pepper powder – 1/2 tsp

1.Mix all the above mentioned ingradients and make a thick batter. Add the cauliflower pieces into the batter and mix well. Make sure every piece is coated well with the batter. In case you have more cauliflower pieces and less batter, don’t be lazy. Please make some more batter. :)Fry the cauliflower till golden brown.
2.While you are frying them, you can even make the sauce ready if you can manage some multi tasking. Other wise, please keep the sauce ready before you fry the cauliflower.

3.For sauce

Heat 2 tbsp oil in a non stick pan and add chopped onions. Saute till the colour of onions turns pink. Add minced ginger and garlic to it and saute for 2 minutes.Add green chilli paste. Now you can add all the sauces, vinegar and sugar.Mix well and saute for 2 minutes. Your sauce is ready
4. Add the fried gobi into the sauce and mix well. Serve hot as a starter.

Hii, I'm Saritha who is finding it extremely difficult to write a paragraph about myself . I have already written few lines and deleted them too as some where i was sounding a bit underconfident or some times a bit too boasty. I don't like to be either of them as i believe that finding a balance between the above mentioned is the blissful state of mind which i always would prefer to be in.I am trying my best here to give you a clear idea about myself ;)
I belong to God's own country, Kerala and i am a big fan of the cuisine of the state . Professionally i'm a mentor of young minds . As i am married to an Indian air force Pilot, i had been living in various parts of the country. I would love to call myself and my hubby as avid travellers as that's one thing which thrills me and lifts up my mood drastically from 'being balanced yet a little boring ' to 'extremely enthusisatic'.I have two sons (a deadly combination to handle) Aditya 13 and Aarush 7 who are choosy in eating like most of the kids. I love my travels and it gives me amble exposure to taste various cuisines within and outside the country. Socializing and parties have always been a part of our Airforce life and who would not like to see the smile on your guest's face after tasting your food. That's how i started cooking and tasting and experimenting.I had seen he days where i found" breaking an egg without creating a mess" as my life's biggest challenge.(lol ;) ).But past few years in cooking has made me realise that it isn't Rocket science.
List of people who can make use of my blog
1. Newly married brides who are struggling with masalas and utensils.
2. Any one who wants to try out something new and exceptional . ( i knw i knw, here i'm a littlt boasty)
3.Bachelor / forced bachelor boys who has developed acidity due to over indulgence in restaurants .Now it's time to cook a meal for yourselves guys. As i said, it's not rocket science.
