Gobi Manchurian

Learnt From:

I learnt this from Aayi’s Recipes.

Serving for:

As an evening snack it can be served for 4 people.


Gobi / Cauliflower --- 2 cups of florets (medium size)
Besan --- 3 Tbls
White Corn flour or Maida (All purpose flour) --- 6 + 1 ½ Tbls
Red chilly powder --- 1 Tbls
Ginger-Garlic Paste --- 1 ½ + 1 tsp
Soya Sauce --- 1 + 1 Tbls
Tomato Sauce / Ketchup --- 1 + 3 Tbls
Green Chilies --- 5
Garlic --- 5 cloves
Onion --- ½ of the big one
Capsicum --- 1
Oil --- to deep fry


Chop the gobi into medium sized florets.

Clean the florets with water.
Add plenty of water to the cleaned florets and boil them in salted water for about 10 minutes.
Transfer the cooked florets to a colander to drain the water.

To deep fry heat the oil.
In a bowl add 3 tblsn of besan (gram flour), 6 tblsn of corn or maida flour, 1 ½ tsp of ginger – garlic paste, 1 tblsn of soya sauce, 1 tblsn of tomato sauce, 1 tblsn of red chilly powder and ¼ tsp of enough salt.
Mix them to make a semi-thick batter as if u make for pakodas.

Taste it and adjust the salt.
Add some of the florets to the batter.

Dip them in the batter one by one like a thin coating should be made on the gobi.
To know whether the oil is hot or not drop a small ball of batter … it should come up immediately onto the upper layer of the oil … at the same time oil should not over heated.
When the oil is hot … drop gobi by gobi into the oil.

Move the gobies upside down with help of spatula to fry uniformly. At the same time try to separate the gobies with spatula if they stick to each other.
Deep fry till it turns to golden brown.
Transfer the fried gobies onto the paper towel to remove excess oil.

Till now, one step was done.
Mix 1 tbls of corn flour in little water without any lumps… then add ½ of water to it and mix. Keep it aside.
Chop 5 garlic cloves, 5 green chilies, ½ big onion (length-wise) and 1 capsicum.
Heat 2 tbls of oil in a wide pan.
Add chopped garlic, green chilies. Fry for 2 minutes.

Add chopped capsicum. Fry for 2 more minutes.
Add sliced onions & 1 tsp of ginger-garlic paste to the pan.
Fry till capsicum done 3/4th .
Add 1 tbls of soya sauce and 3 tblsn of tomato ketchup to the pan.

Add the corn flour which u already mixed and kept aside to the pan. See and adjust water. It may take still half more cup of water. But the gravy should be thick.

Stir fry for 2-3 minutes.
Add the fried gobi to the pan.

Stir fry for 2 more minutes.
Transfer the gobi manchurian to a serving bowl.

Have it with tomato sauce.

Or with rice.
