Gobhi Manchurian Gravy (Cauliflower)

Well this was one of the dish in my Valentines day dinner Menu. I had so much of plans on this day but with baby at home it highly impossible to execute any of those. Finally I decided on a simple fast menu and it was.... Malai Murg Kebab, Gobi Manchurian Gravy, Egg Fried Rice & Gooey Chocolate Cake with Ice Cream. After making all this I was dead tired:(

Ingredients for Cauliflower fry :
  • 1 Medium size Cauliflower (cut, Clean & soak them in salted water for 15 mins) 
  • 3 tbspn corn flour
  • 1 tbspn Rice Flour
  • 1 tbspn Maida All purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tbspn Chili Powder
  • Salt as per taste
  • Oil for deep frying
Method: Make a thick batter using ingredients 2 to 7 & add in the Cauliflower into this batter. Deep fry this in hot oil for 3 to 5 mins. Remove it when its golden brown.
Ingredients for the Gravy:
  • 1 medium Capsicum diced
  • 1 medium Onion diced in layers
  • 2 tbspn finely chopped Garlic
  • 3 tbspn chopped spring onions
  • 1 tbspn Dark Soya Sauce
  • 1 tbspn Tomato sauce
  • 1 tbspn Chili Powder
  • 1/4 tspn sugar
  • Salt as per taste
  • 1 tbspn  Hao Chi all seasoning  ( You can use maggie taste maker cubes as well)
  • 2 cups water (as required)
  • 1 tbspn Corn Flour
  • 1 tbspn of cooking Oil
Method: In a Pan/ Wok add oil fry the onion, garlic for 2 mins. Add capsicum, 5 to 10 ingredients. fry for a minute & add water & bring to boil. Now in a cup take 1/4 cup of water mix the corn flour & make a think paste. Add this to the boiling water and keep stirring. Cook this for a minute & turn off the gas. Add in the fried cauliflower just before serving. By doing this the cauliflower remains crunchy. Garnish this with spring onion.
  • Cauliflower is soaked in salt water to kill any germs in them
  • I don't add ajinamoto as its not good for health.
  • If you want your Manchurian dry, skip adding so much water. Instead add just 2 tbspn of water & 1/4 tspn of corn flower directly into the mixture.
  • This dish looks blackish coz I have used dark soya sauce
