Gobi Manchurian

Ive always wanted to give this a try and managed to do it over the weekend...turned out delicious ;)

Ingredients :

For frying:
cauliflower florets (I used 1/2  a cauliflower)
7 tbsp plain flour
4 tbsp cornflour
1/2 tsp chilli powder or paprika
2 garlic cloves (pounded)
a bit of salt
enough water

For the sauce :
1 big onion (sliced)
2 green chillies (sliced lengthwise)
2 1/2 tbsp tomato ketchup
1 1/2 tsp chilli sauce or 1 tsp green chilli sauce
1 tsp light soy sauce
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
2 tsp cornflour (mixed with some water)
salt to taste

Method :

Heat oil in a non-stick pan. Fry onion and chilli till onions are soft and chilli turns colour. Add in garlic and fry for a couple of minutes.
The add in the ketchup, sauces and mix well. Later add in the vinegar. Mix for about 10 seconds and all in the cornflour mixture and cook till sauce thickens. Add salt if needed.

Next make the batter by combining all the frying ingredients with water. Heat oil. Dip cauliflower florets in the batter and fry till golden brown.

Once the cauliflower is fried, mix it all with the sauce till well coated. Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot.
