More awards :) & Recipe for Gobi ( Cauliflower) Manchurian dry

I am very excited to receive more awards from my sweet friends Devi, Jagruti and Nithu!

Nithu (http://nithubala-recipes.blogspot.com/) and Devi (http://fresherscookbook.blogspot.com/) have shared with me this 'Beautiful blogger' award.



Jagruti (http://joyofcooking247.blogspot.com/) has shared with me 'Kreative Blogger' award.



Its so kind of you to remember me! Bunch of thanks to all three of you for showering your love on my blog! I am delighted :)

Now time for today's recipe i.e. Gobi Manchurian. Who does not like this! This is one starter which we always used to order whenever we go to any restaurant. Though this is my favorite starter, I never prepared it at home in India. But here in Grand rapids, I could not find any restaurant serving this tasty dish. So finally I prepared it at home and I am really happy I did it :) It tasted great. It is simple and it was wonderful eating gobi Manchurian after so many days :) So here goes the recipe...



Ingredients:
15-20 Cauliflower florets
1 onion finely chopped
3 garlic cloves finely chopped
1 tsp grated ginger
1/2 cup capsicum diced
1/4 cup green onions finely chopped
2-3 green chillies cut lengthwise
7 tbsp maida
4 tbsp corn flour + 2 tbsp corn flour for sauce
2 tbsp tomato ketchup
2 tbsp red chilli sauce
4 tsp soya sauce
2 tsp vinegar
1 tsp red chilli powder
Oil for frying + 2 tbsp oil for sauce
Salt

Method:

  1. Boil cauliflower florets in water for 4-5 minutes. Take care not to overcook florets.Drain the water and let florets dry for few minutes.
  2. Mix maida, 4 tbsp corn flour, red chilli powder and salt. Add water slowly to form a batter. The batter should be thick enough so that it covers cauliflower florets nicely.
  3. Heat oil in deep kadhai for frying. Deep cauliflower florets in batter and put them in hot oil one by one. Take care florets are completely covered in batter. Deep fry them till they get nice golden color and become crispy. Keep fried florets aside.
  4. For making sauce, heat 2 tbsp oil in wok.
  5. Add onion, green chillies, garlic and ginger. Fry for some time. When onion becomes soft add capsicum. Fry again for 2-3 minutes.
  6. Add tomato ketchup and red chilli sauce. Fry for a minute.
  7. Add soya sauce, vinegar. Mix well. Add 1/2 cup of water and 2 tbsp corn flour. Mix corn flour properly taking care it does not form lumps. Heat this for 2-3 minutes.
  8. Add fried cauliflower florets and mix properly. All florets should be covered with sauce properly. Switch of the heat. Garnish with green onions.

Serve hot with fried rice or noodles.
Preparation time: 45 minutes
