Gobi Manchurian / Cauliflower Manchurian



Today I am sharing the recipe of Gobi Manchurian which is an Indo-Chinese dish. Indo-Chinese recipes are very popular among Indians. Even I am a huge fan of that. When I was working in bangalore, I was a regular visitor  of Chungs chinese restaurant at Jayanagar.Couple of days back, I was having a chat with one of my friend who was there with me in Bangalore. She told me that she went to this restaurant recently and that's it, after our conversation I called my hubby and told him to buy a cauliflower while coming back from office. I made this on that same day.

Serves ~ 3 Adults

Ingredients

Cauliflower ~ 1 No ( Medium sized )
Corn flour ~ 1/2 cup
Maida / All purpose flour ~ 1 cup
Rice flour ~ 3 tbsp
Pepper powder ~ 1 tsp
Red food color ~ 2-3 drops (Optional)  
Chopped Spring Onion ( White Part ) ~ 1/2 cup
Chopped onions ~ 1 cup ( Medium size pieces )
Diced Capsicum ~ 1 cup (Medium size pieces )
Green chillies ~ 3-4 Nos
Garlic ~ 2-3 cloves
Soy sauce ~ 3 tbsp
Chilly Sauce ~ 2 tbsp
Tomato sauce ~ 5 tbsp
Chopped Spring Onion ( Green Part ) ~ for garnishing
Oil ~ Enough oil for frying
Salt to taste

Method

  • First discard the green leaves and thick core part  of the cauliflower and cut it into medium size florets. Then put the cauliflower in hot water for about 10-15 minutes.Then first drain and then pat dry them using a towel.
  • Then in a bowl, mix 1/2 cup corn flour, 1 cup all purpose flour, 3 tbsp rice flour, 1 tsp pepper powder, red food color and enough salt. Then add lukewarm water little by little to make a thick paste. Make sure not to make it very watery.
  • Heat oil in a pan and then dip the florets in this batter and then deep fry them in batches in a medium-low flame until it becomes golden brown in color. Then place it on a paper towel.
  • Then heat 2 tbsp of oil in a pan and add chopped spring onions (Only the white part), diced onions, chopped green chillies, chopped garlic, diced capsicum and saute till they become soft. Meanwhile mix 1 tbsp of cornflour in 1/2 cup of lukewarm water and add this to it followed by soy sauce, chilly sauce, tomato sauce and salt. Simmer for about 5-10 minutes. Then add the fried cauliflower florets and in a medium flame, toss it continuously till all the florets are well coated in the sauce. Finally garnish with chopped spring onions (green part).
Enjoy immediately with chapathi / Fried Rice / Noodles. 

Cheers!!
