Gobi Manchurian

Hi friends, Today i am going to post the recipe for Gopi Manchurian. I was requested by Mrs Arthi Vijay. A busy mom who really started to explore cooking to impress her 1 and half year old kid. Its so nice to see people contacting me, and asking for more n more different recipe. I really feel happy for it...well, coming back to this gobi manchurian - I have made it bit dry to suit my day. You could always make more gravy. Well, an extra water would do all the magic. So here is the recipe just for you....

Ingredients :

Cauliflower - 1/2 ( Broken into small florets)
Big Onion - 1 ( Chopped lenth wise)
Green Chilly -2 ( chopped lengthwise)
Garlic - 2 ( Chopped into small pieces)
Ginger - small piece chopped finely
Chilly powder - 1/2 tsp ( Optional , You can add it if you wish it to be bit more spicy)
Salt - To taste
Oil - To fry
Corn flour water - ( 1 tsp of cornflour mixed with 1/2 cup water, if you need more gravy, then mix more accordingly)
Lime Juice - 2 - 5 drops
Soya Sauce - 1/2 tsp
Ajinomoto - a pinch
Pepper - 1/2 tsp
Plain flour - 5 tsp
Cornflour - 6 -7 tsp
Red food Colouring - 2 pinch

Preparation :

* First cut the cauliflower into small pieces.
* Then put it in a vessel, add water and pinch of salt and cook it for 5 - 7 mins.
* Drain the water, allow it to cool.
* Then take a vessel add the plain flour, cornflour, pepper and salt, mix everything together and make it into a paste adding some water. Then add the cauliflowers in it and mix well, making sure you geenrously coat cauliflower with the mixture.
* keep it aside.
Now take a heavy bottomed pan/kadai, then add oil, add the chopped garlic and ginger pieces and fry it.
* Then add the onion and fry till golden brown.
* Now add the green chillies and fry for few mins.

* Then add the chilly powder ( optional)
* Add soya sauce, ajinomoto and cook for few more mins.
* Then add the cornflour water, and salt and cook until the mixture is thick. If you want more gravy, then add more water to it.

* Now add the food coloruing. Mix well keep it aside.
* Finally deep fry the cauliflower, and add it to the prepared mixture . ( I prefer frying the caulifower finally and adding it , just to retain its crispness)

* Then finally squeece some lime juice , and serve hot.....
