Gobhi Manchurian is an Indo Chinese Appetizer and is always loved as a starter and goes well with any type of drink whether hot or cold. It is very simple and easy to cook recipe and takes very little time. In this recipe we have made its gravy which is a very thick one, only used to coat the cauliflower pieces. Then deep fry the cauliflower pieces coated with a batter. It’s a perfect blend of Indian and Chinese cuisine to give that extra effect to the recipe. You can substitute the cauliflower with small idli and make Idli Manchurian or any other substitute.


For Cauliflower Batter

1 small Cauliflower                                         ½ Cup Water
3-4 Tbsp Maida / All Purpose Flour                 Salt to taste
Oil for Deep Frying                                          ½ Tsp Garam Masala
2 Tbsp Corn Flour

For Gravy

2 Tbsp Tomato Ketchup                                 2 Tbsp Vinegar
1 Tbsp Chilly Sauce                                        1 Tbsp Soya Sauce
1 Small Onion                                                 1 Tbsp Oil
1 Pc Green Chilly                                            3-4 Tbsp Water
2 Tbsp Corn Flour                                           Salt to taste (if needed)


*) Cut the cauliflower into pieces.

*) Finely chop the onion and green chilly.

*) Mix Corn Flour with Water and put it aside. (For gravy)  



In a large pan, add all purpose flour (maida), corn flour, salt, garam masala and mix well.  Add water slowly according to your needs with regard to consistency. It should be thick. Make sure there are no lumps. Coat the cauliflower pieces in this batter.  Deep fry them until golden brown.


Switch on the flame, add oil. Let it heat and then add green chilly and onion. Fry it a little so that it becomes little soft. Remove the pan from heat and add tomato ketchup and chilly sauce. Mix it well and put the pan on heat. Add Vinegar and soya sauce. Mix well. Add pre mixed corn flour with water. Add salt if needed as the pieces also contains salt. Add coated deep fried cauliflower to this mixture and mix well. Dish is ready to be served.
