Cauliflower 65

Recipe for Gobhi 65


  • Cauliflower - 1
  • Corn Flour - 3 cups
  • Maida - 1 cup
  • Turmeric Powder - 1 tsp
  • Red Chilly Powder - 2 tbsp (You can also add hot sauce instead)
  • Ajinamoto - 1/2 tsp
  • Soy Sauce - 2 tsp
  • Lemon Juice / Vinegar - 1/2 tsp
  • Black Pepper Powder - 1 tsp
  • Red Food Color - a pinch
  • Salt - as needed


  1. Mix the corn flour, maida, turmeric, red chilly powder, ajinomoto, pepper powder and salt together.
  2. Add the red food color, lemon juice and soy sauce.
  3. Add water gradually to avoid lumps and make a smooth paste.
  4. In the meantime, heat oil in a kadai.
  5. Drop few cauliflower florets in the batter and toss so that the florets are completely coated with the batter.
  6. Gently drop the florets one at a time in the hot oil. Do not overcrowd the pan.
  7. The florets sometimes tend to stick to each other in the oil. Separate the florets using tongs or a spoon with long handle.
  8. After about 6-8 minutes, the florets will be golden brown. Remove them and drain excess oil in a paper towel..
  9. Garnish with celery leaves or green onions. Serve hot with tomato ketchup, schezwan sauce or any other sauce.


  • Gobhi 65 remains crisp for a long time. You can also refrigerate/freeze the leftovers. In that case, just heat it in a 400 degree F oven for 5-10 minutes before serving and they will become crispy again.
  • Those who love masala flavour can add a pinch of garam masala while preparing the batter.
