One of the things that I missed most when I came to US was street food like what I used to love in Bangalore. And when I say street food the first thing that comes to my mind is Gobi Manchurian. So here is my version of Gobi Manchurian. Hope you like it.


Gobi / Cauliflower: 1 medium sized
Corn Flour: 2 cups
Red Chilli powder: 2 tsp
Red Onion: 1 small
Green Onions chopped: 1/2 cup (optional)
Ginger (Chopped into cubes): 1 tblspn
Garlic (Chopped into cubes): 1 tblspn
Chopped Green Chillies: 6-7 nos (as per taste)
Chopped Cilantro: 1/2 cup
Tomato Ketchup: 1/4 cup
Oil to deep fry
Salt to taste
Water for the batter as needed


Cut the cauliflower into florets, wash well and soak in water and a pinch or turmeric and salt.
In a bowl, add corn flour, salt, chilli powder and add water to make the batter. The batter should be a little thinner than the ones used for bhajji. 
Heat oil in a kadai for deep frying. 
Drain the florets, dip it in the batter and deep fry them till golden brown. Keep them aside.
In a kadai add a little oil. Add the chopped green chillies, ginger, garlic, green onions and onions. Saute for a few minutes. Add the tomato ketchup and half of the salt. Saute.
Add the fried florets. and sprinkle the rest of the salt and saute well. Garnish with chopped cilantro and serve hot. You can add more ketchup as per taste.

Ciao till next time...Have fun! Vidya.
