Recipe For Gobi Manchurian



  • Cauliflower - 1 Big
  • All purpose flour (Maida) - 2 tbsp
  • Corn flour (or corn starch) - 2 cups
  • Chilli powder - 2 tbsp
  • Pepper powder -1 tsp
  • Salt - 1 tsp
  • Water- as needed to make a thick batter


  • Onion - 1(Sliced)
  • Garlic - 3-4 cloves (finely chopped)
  • Ginger - 1"(finely chopped)
  • Colored peppers - (as needed)
  • Green chilli - 1 or 2
  • Tomato sauce - 4 tbsp
  • Chilly sauce - 1 tbsp (or as per your spice level)
  • Soy sauce - 3 tsp
  • Oil -2 tbsp


  1. Separate the florets and put in hot water for 5 minutes.
  2. Mix all the other ingredients from batch-1
  3. Dip the florets and deep fry in oil and drain excess oil on the paper towel.
  4. Take a non stick pan. Pour 2 tbsp oil and saute the onions, ginger and garlic.
  5. Add the colored pepper and saute for 2 minutes .
  6. Add the tomato sauce, chilli sauce and soy sauce and mix a little.
  7. Finally add the fried cauliflower florets into the mixture.
  8. Mix it and garnish with finely chopped green onions or cilantro.
  9. Serve it with fried rice, pulao or chapatti.


  • Instead of deep frying the florets you can fry on the non stick pan with enough oil. But the flowerets will be crispier in deep fry.
  • To get the Chinese flavor add a pinch of ajinamoto to the gravy.
  • Add the fried cauliflower just before serving to maintain its crispiness.

but still the cauliflower inside remains bland,how to make it tasty,,plzz tell me
Person   ()
Hi Neha, Drop the cauliflowers in warm salted water for few minutes. This will get rid of any worms inside and helps some salt ooze inside.

Cut the cauliflower into small florets, so that there is lot of coating and sauce. This will make it more flavorful.
