Gobi Manchurian

Gobi Manchurian

Gobi Manchurian is one of the common Indo Chinese dish. It is flavorful yet simple. This recipe is a very special request of one of my dear friend. Hope you like it.

For Gobi Manchurian: [4 servings approx.]
Gobi [Cauliflower] -1 whole
Maida [All purpose flour] – ¾ cup
Corn flour -1/4 cup
Onion – 1 chopped
Ginger- 1.5 tbsp finely chopped
Garlic- 1.5 tbsp finely chopped
Green spring onions- 1 bunch
Ajinomoto [Chinese salt] – ¼ tsp
Soy sauce- 2 tbsp
Tomato ketchup -2 tbsp
Cooking oil for frying
Salt as per taste

  1. Cut cauliflower into bite size florets and wash thoroughly. Keep aside.
  2. In a bowl, add corn flour, Maida, salt, half ginger, half garlic and little water to make a runny batter. Now dip the cauliflower florets in the batter and deep fry till they turn golden. Drain on a kitchen towel and keep aside.
  3. In a pan heat 2 tbsp cooking oil. Add chopped onions, remaining ginger and garlic. Sauté for 2-3 minutes. Add fried Gobi florets to it. Mix well and also add ajinomoto, soy sauce and tomato ketchup. Add some salt if needed. [Soy sauce already has some salt.] Mix well and its ready. 
Garnish Gobi Manchurian with freshly chopped green spring onions. Serve hot with plain steamed rice.
