Gobhi Manchurian with Gravy


Plain flour/Maida         -2 tblsp
Corn flour                     -2 tblsp + 2 tspoon (For gravy)
Baking Soda            -1 pinch
Cauliflower                   -1 medium size
Onion                            -1 big very finely chopped
Garlic                            -6 cloves pureed
Ginger                           -1 inch pureed
Spring onion                 -4 sprigs
Chilli tomato sauce       -1 tblsp
Soy sauce                      -2 tsp
Black Pepper powder   -1 tsp heaped
Salt                               -to taste
Sugar                            -1/2 tsp
Oil                                -to fry cauliflower florets
Water                           -1/2 cup


First of all, Clean the cauliflower florets by immersing them in hot water with salt for 10 minutes. This way, they will be parboiled.

Now, Make a batter with corn flour, plain flour and cooking soda, thick enough to coat the florets. Just the way you make coating batter for pakoras.

You can either dip the well drained florets one by one in the batter or just mix all of the batter with the drained florets and deep fry.
Just make sure there is enough batter to coat the florets. Deep fry until crisp and light.Keep aside.

In a heavy bottom wide pan heat 2 tblsp oil and add garlic and ginger puree.
Give it a quick stir and then add finely chopped white part of the spring onion and the chopped red onion and fry till transparent.
Add both soy and tomato chili sauce, salt, sugar, black pepper and mix well.
Add 1/2 cup of water to this mixture.
Now dissolve 2 tspoon corn-flour in 2 tblspoon of water and add it to the pan.
Stir continuously so that cornflour mixture mixes well with everything.
Now let it boil for 2 minutes, keep it boiling untill the gravy starts to thicken
Now add the fried florets and mix well. Give a chance to soak bit of gravy , say for a minute.

Now switch off the flame and take out the Manchurian in a serving dish.
Finally garnish it with chopped green part of the spring onion.
Serve hot immediately as starter or with any Chinese style rice or noodles. I serve them with either steamed rice or garlic noodles.
