Chilli Gobhi

I'm sure most of u like me adore Indo-Chinese food. I can't tell u guys enough how fascinated I'm with these dishes. When in India a group of friends would go to this restaurant S.R Nagar which served the best Indo-Chinese food......I loved going there. Here in the US, I could not find any decent Indian place near my place which served this kinda food. The one I found did not serve the chilli gobhi. After much brainstorming with my friend N we came up with recipe :) and it is a huge hit.

Ingredients :

All purpose flour/ Maida ------4 tbsps
Corn strach -------------------1 tbsp + 1/4 tsp
Baking soda--------------------A pinch
Garlic pwd --------------------1/4 tsp
Onion pwd(optional)------------1/4 tsp
Soya sauce---------------------1 tsp
Cumin pwd----------------------1 tsp
Corriander pwd-----------------1 tsp
Red chilly pwd ----------------1/2 tsp
Salt --------------------------to taste
Oil----------------------------1 tsp
Water--------------------------about 1/4 cup or just enough to make the batter
Garlic -------------------------1 tbsp (minced)
Green chillies------------------6 (thinly sliced)
Curry leaves--------------------1/2 sprig(optional)
Chaat Masala--------------------1/2 tsp

  • Cut the cauliflower into florets and blanch in boiled water for 3-4 mins.
  • In a bowl mix all purpose flour, corn starch,cumin pwd, corriander pwd, salt, redchilly pwd, onion pwd,garlic pwd, soya sauce,oil and just enough water to make a batter (not too thin).
  • Check the seasoning.
  • Heat enough oil for deep frying. Dip the blanched cauliflower in the batter and fry for about 2 mins and drain onto a paper towel.
  • Now increase the heat and fry the already fried cauliflower florets till crisp.
  • Keep aside.
  • Heat a wok, add about 1tsp of oil. When hot add minced garlic and fry (taking care not to burn) for about a min.
  • Then add the minced onion and fry for another minute. Now add the sliced green chillies and fry for another 2 mins.
  • Add the fried florets and sprinkle chaat masala and 1 tsp cilantro on it . Mix well.
  • Switch off. Serve hot.
  • Enjoy !!!
