Garlic Pickle

Gobi Manchurian is a very popular starter recipe eaturing crispy cauliflower florets dancing in a tantalizing spicy sauce that taste awesome and goes well with noodles or with fried rice.I am sharing a dry version of gobi manchurian but if you want gravy version you can add corn flour water and thicken it.

Preperation Steps

Cut the cauliflower into florets. The florets should not be too big, it should be medium. Heat some water in a pan and add it over the cauliflower florets.Allow it to rest for 10 mins.Drain it completely. Keep it aside.
To Fry the Cauliflower florets : In a bowl, Add All purpose flour, Corn flour, rice flour, Kashmiri Chilly powder, required salt and ginger garlic paste. Mix it well.
Add water gradually and make it to a smooth paste.The batter should not be too thick nor too thin.
Add the cauliflower florets and coat them well in the batter.
Heat some oil for frying. Deep fry the cauliflower florets until golden brown.Make them in batches. Keep it aside.

To Make Sauce
In a pan, heat oil. Add minced garlic and ginger and saute for a minute.
Add chopped onion and saute till slightly soft.
Add Green chillies and chopped Bell pepper and saute for a min.
Add Soy sauce, Chilli sauce, Tomato Ketchup, vinegar, salt and pepper . Mix well.
Finally add the fried cauliflower florets. Give it a good mix.
Garnish it with chopped spring onion .Mix well.
Serve hot with fried rice or as an appetizer.
If you want little gravy, Mix 1 tbsp of cornstarch in 1 cup of water and add it to the gravy and allow to thicken a little and then add the cauliflower florets
Don’t add salt for gravy,because the sauces have salt in it.
Always serve hot as it may turn soggy when resting time is given.
Make sure not to saute the veggies for a long time as the veggies need to be crunchy.
