Gobhi Manchurian Dry

I recently published another dish by name of gobi Manchurian but in that recipe we used only 1 tsp of oil. This is little different as you would see. This one is totally dry though it used little more oil than the previous one. Usually we associate Manchurian with the Chinese food but the gobi manturian is Indian adaptation of Chinese variety as most people in india are vegetarians and do not eat meat in any form so it was necessary to introduce a vegetarian variety to them so they too can enjoy the taste across the border. This recipe uses lot more oil than the last one as it is nto only shallow fried but also deep fried


  1. Cauliflower: 4 cups cut in to small florets.
  2. Ginger paste: I like 2 Tsp but some even add 4 Tsp.
  3. Garlic paste: 1 Tsp.
  4. Soy Sauce: 1 Tsp.
  5. Vinegar: ½ Tsp.
  6. All purpose flour ( maida): 34 Tbsp.
  7. Corn Flour: 1 Tsp.
  8. Red Chili Powder: 1 Tsp. ( use ½ Tsp if you do not like too much chili)
  9. White pepper Powder: ½ Tsp.
  10. Salt” 2 Tsp or as per taste.

For Saute

  1. Onion: 1 Red medium diced.
  2. Bell Pepper: green 1 diced.
  3. Oil: 2 cups for frying.
  4. Oil: 3 Tbsp for sauté.
  5. Green chilies: 2 silted and cut in to halves.
  6. Ginger garlic paste: 1 tsp.
  7. Green spring onions:3 Tsp.finely chopped
  8. Soy sauce: 1 Tsp.
  9. Chili garlic sauce: 2 Tbsp.
  10. Tomato Ketchup: 3 Tbsp.
  11. Salt: According to taste.
  12. Ajinomoto: 1 tsp.

How to make it

  1. First of all as in all the cauliflower dishes, wash it thoroughly.
  2. Now take a bowl and put water and cauliflower florets in it.
  3. Bring it boil and cook till the florets are half boiled. It should only take a few minutes.
  4. Now take them out of water and pat dry the florets.

  7. Now add cauliflower florets in this and mix well so they are coated by the paste on all sides.
  8. Now take a heavy base pan.
  9. Heat oil to deep fry.
  10. Fry the florets in the oil.
  11. Remove excess oil from the florets with help of paper towel.
  12. Keep aside.
  13. Now in a pan heat 3 tbsp of oil on high heat. Sauté onions, green peppers, ginger garlic& green chilies for a few minutes till they turn tender.
  14. Now add fried cauliflower in it.

      I would like this but my husband who does not like cauliflower probably would not...although with all of the flavorings, it would be well disguised. Check your instruction #14. I know you meant the word "add" instead of hitting the "s" one key over. Voting this up, useful and will tweet.
