Gobi Manchurian - Domestic CEO

1 head cauliflower

5 tbsp plain flour
3 tbsp cornflour
1 tsp red chilli powder
1/4 tsp pepper powder
1 garlic clove, chopped finely
Salt to taste
Water (about 1 cup)

1 small onion, chopped finely
1/4 cup capsicum, chopped finely
4 cloves garlic, chopped finely
3 green chillies, slit
3 tbsp ketchup
1 tsp green chilli sauce (optional)
2 tsp soy sauce
2 tsp vinegar
2 tsp cornflour mixed with 4 tbsp water
Salt to taste
Oil for deep frying


  1. Cut the cauliflower into florets.
  2. Prepare the batter. Add the water bit by bit to get the right consistency (not too runny).
  3. Coat the florets with the batter and deep fry until golden brown.
  4. Drain the fried cauliflower well.
  5. In a separate pan, heat oil and fry the onions, capsicum, green chillies and garlic until the onions turn golden brown.
  6. Lower the flame and add the ketchup and the green chilli sauce to the onions and mix well. Let it fry for 10 seconds.
  7. Add the soy sauce and vinegar, mix well and fry for another 10 seconds.
  8. Add the cornflour-water mixture and mix until the sauce thickens.
  9. Add salt to taste (may not be needed because you’ve added soy sauce)
  10. Turn off heat and mix the fried cauliflower in to this sauce.

Serve with a toothpick or fork as a snack. For a curry, you may add more water to the cornflour-water mixture. It makes a good accompaniment for fried rice.
