Gobi Manchurian Recipe

Gobi (or cauliflower) has got to be the most loved vegetable of North Indian cuisine, and although I grew up eating it, I never quite knew there was this Oriental version. From the name Gobi Manchurian, and also the ingredients containing soy sauce and deep fried cauliflowers, I can guess someone was trying to recreate a vegetarian version of sweet and sour meat dish, and came up with this!

I've been meaning to post this recipe after a few requests but it just escaped my mind many many times and here it is before it escape again!

You Need: 
Cauliflower cut into florets
onion, garlic and ginger, chopped
some green pepper, chopped
some soy sauce
some tomato sauce
2tsp corn flour
cooking oil 
For the batter:
4tbsp of flour
2tbsp corn flour
some cumin/coriander powder
some water 

1) Mix the batter ingredients together and ensure a medium thick batter. Put the florets of cauliflower in and coat ir well.
2) Deep/shallow fry in oil.
3) Keep the fried cauliflower aside. Remove some of the oil and leave just sufficient for some sautee.
4) Sautee the onion, garlic and ginger.
5) Add some water and 2 splashes of soy sauce and some tomato sauce.
6) Once it boils, add some corn flour mixed with water to thicken the sauce.
7) Once it is thickened and simmering,  add the fried cauliflowers into it and coat well. Turn off the heat almost immediately.

You can garnish it with some spring onion, or even coriander leaves. It is best served warm, or rather hot with hot rice! However once you have had a bite of it, you would continue digging and finishing it on its own. Happy cooking!
