Cauliflower Manchurian

If there are veggie dishes like these then who needs meat because frankly I think this one tastes much better than it's non-veg counterpart. The cauliflower in this recipe is batter fried to make it crispy and tossed in a spicy , tangy and sweet sauce , so here goes...........


1 meduim sized cauliflower
1/2 tsp red chilli powder
1/4 black pepper powder
salt to taste
1/2 cup self- raising flour
1 bunch spring onions chopped
2 tbsp celery chopped
1 tbsp ginger garlic paste
2 green chillies chopped
2 tbsp tomato ketchup
1 tbsp soy sauce
1and 1/2 tbsp green chilli sauce
1and 1/2 tbsp chilli sauce
oil for frying


Cut the cauliflower into small florets and soak it in hot salted water for half an hour.
Drain the cauliflower and marinate it with the chilli powder, pepper and salt .
Mix water in the self-raising flour and make it into a thick batter.
Dip the cauliflower in this batter and deep fry it till it turns golden .
In another pan add a little oil , add the ginger garlic paste, spring onion , green chillies and celery and saute on high heat for a min.
Add all the sauces and fry them for a few min.
Toss the fried cauliflower in the sauce mix and serve immediately.
Garnish with spring onion.


If you don't have self- raising flour then make a batter with 1/2 cup all purpose flour and 2 tbsp cornflour and add a 1/4 tsp of baking soda but it is much crispier with the self-raising flour.
