Gobi Manchurian Dry Recipe - Cauliflower Manchurian Dry Recipe with step by step pictures - Snack recipe

My kids are big fans of indo chinese food. Esp Manchurian recipes. I had posted Baby corn Manchurian and Mushroom manchurian before in my space. I make this for snack or as side dish for fried rice. This dish is famous with my office colleagues too. You can make this either as dry or gravy. I do a dry version for snack. I find double frying the cauliflower keeps it crisp for longer time. So I have used double fry in this recipe. If you are going to have it immediately and wants to go with just single fry you can do it also

Cauliflower - 3 cups

All purpose flour - 3/4 cup
Corn starch - 2 tablespoon
Soya sauce (light) - 2 teaspoon
Pepper Powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Salt to taste
Oil for deep frying

For Sauce

Ginger - 1/2 teaspoon (finely chopped)

Garlic - 2 teaspoons (finely chopped)
Spring onion (green Part) - 1/4 cup
Spring onion (white part) - 1 tablespoon
Green capsicum - 1/2 (medium. chop into small pieces)
Green chillies - 4 (adjust to your spice level. Chopped finely)

Sugar - 1/2 teaspoon
