Gobi Manchurian (Dry)

Gobi manchurian is a very famous Indian-chinese starter. I love gobi manchurian dry. I never miss to have in Shanthi Sagar, Bangalore when I go home. Have seen many small shops for only Gobi and Fried rice.

I was missing Gobi manchurian and tried preparing last weekend. It was very good and yummy.
Cauli Flower - 1 medium size
Kadalai Maav (Besan/Chickpea Flour) - 1 tspn
Chola Maav (Corn Flour) - 2 tspns
Arasi Maav (Rice Flour) - 4 tspns
Chilli powder - 1/2 tspn
Kesari colour a pinch - Optional I have not used.

Oil for deep frying
For Manchurian

Onion - 1 no chopped
Capsicum - 1/2 no chopped
Ginger - chopped finely 1/2 tspn
Garlic - 1 no chopped - OptionalFresh coriander leaves (Cilantro) - Chopped 1 tspn
Spring onion - 1 no chopped - OptionalSoya Sauce - 2 tspns
Tomato Sauce - 2 tspns
Chilli sauce - 1 tspn(as per your taste)or Green chilli- OptionalSalt to taste

Preparation Method
Make small florets of it. Put in boiling water with little salt and a pinch of turmeric for 10minutes.
Drain/Strain fully so no water is left.
Transfer it to a wide bowl. Sprinkle Arasi, Chola and Kadalai maav all over and mix well. Add chilli powder and salt. Sprinkle very little water and mix well.
Deep fry in oil and keep it separately.

For Manchurian
In a pan add oil (Can use left over oil after deep fry) add onion, ginger, garlic and fry till its transperant.
Then add chopped capsicum and saute.
Add crispy cauliflower and mix.
Add all the sauces and mix. If required all some more sauce.

Garnish with chopped coriander leaves or spring onions.

Serve hot with tomato sauce or fried rice.
Enjoy the delicious Gobi manchurian Bengaluru style.

Notes - Since I don't use garlic at home hence its always Optional.
