For Blanching

  • Cauliflower 1 or 3 cups chopped cauliflower
  • Hot water as required, for blanching


For The Batter

  • Whole wheat flour ¾ cup
  • Cornflour (corn starch) 3 tbsp
  • Ginger garlic paste 1 tsp
  • Red chilli powder ½ tsp
  • Black pepper powder ½ tsp
  • Soy sauce 1 tsp
  • Salt as required
  • Water or add as required ¾ cup


For Frying

  • Oil 6 tablespoons
  • For Corn-starch Paste
  • Corn-starch (corn flour) 1 tbsp
  • Water 2 tbsp


For The Gobi Manchurian Gravy

  • Finely chopped ginger 1 tbsp
  • Finely chopped garlic 1 tbsp
  • Finely chopped green chilies ½ to 1 tsp
  • Chopped spring onions ½ cup
  • Chopped celery 1 tsp – optional
  • Tomato ketchup 2 tbsp
  • Soy sauce 1 tbsp
  • Green chili sauce or red chili sauce ½ tbsp
  • Black pepper powder ½ tsp
  • Water 1.5 cups
  • Sugar ½ tsp
  • Rice vinegar 1 tsp
  • Salt as required
  • Chopped spring onions 2 tbsp

Firstly chop or break a medium sized gobi or cauliflower to small or medium-sized florets. Rinse them very well.
Then in a bowl add enough hot boiling water.
Add the gobi to the hot water. Let them get blanched in the water for about 10 minutes. Later drain all the water and keep the blanched gobi aside.
Making Batter
In a bowl take the whole wheat flour, corn starch, ginger-garlic paste, red chili powder, black pepper powder and soy sauce. Also add salt as required.
Add water. Whisk to a smooth batter.
Add the gobi florets in the batter. Keep in mind that there should be no water in the florets. So drain them well of all the water before adding them in the batter. Mix well.
Pan Frying Cauliflower
Heat 6 tablespoons oil in a pan or wok or kadai.
When the oil becomes medium hot, coat the cauliflower florets well with the batter and add them in hot oil. Fry in batches. You can even deep fry cauliflower.
Fry the batter coated cauliflower florets in hot oil on medium heat.
When one side becomes light golden and lightly crisp, then turn over each cauliflower floret. Make sure the oil is hot or else while frying the florets may start to stick to each other due to the cornstarch. They will also absorb more oil if the oil is not hot.
Turn them over a couple of times and fry till they are crisp and golden.
Remove the fried cauliflower florets with a slotted spoon and keep them on kitchen paper towels. Continue to fry the cauliflower florets in batches this way.
Making Gobi Manchurian Gravy
When the cauliflower florets are frying, you can mix 1 tablespoon corn flour (corn starch) with 2 tablespoons water to a smooth paste and set aside.
In the same pan, there will be some oil. So no need to add more oil. Add only if all oil has been used up while frying gobi. Add finely chopped ginger, garlic and green chilies.
Then add chopped spring onions and finely chopped celery (optional). Celery can be skipped if you do not have it.
Stir fry on a medium heat till the onions turn translucent.
When the onions turn translucent, then add tomato ketchup and spicy chili sauce (green or red) and soy sauce. You can use either red chili sauce or green chili sauce.
