How to make Cauliflower Manchurian

  1. Drop the cauliflower florets in boiling water (boil the water with a pinch of turmeric and salt). Leave it for 2 minutes. After a couple of minutes, transfer the florets to a bowl of cold water to stop the cauliflower from cooking further.
  2. In another bowl, mix together the maida/flour, corn flour, salt, 1/2 tsp pepper powder, 1/2 tsp red chilli powder. Add a little water to make a smooth batter.
  3. Dip the cauliflower florets in the batter and fry them until they are crisp and golden.
  4. Heat some oil in a pan and add in the chopped ginger, garlic and green chilli. Add the onions and capsicum next. Add a pinch of sugar to caramelize the onions a bit.
  5. Add the soy sauce, tomato sauce, chilli garlic sauce, vinegar, red chilli powder, pepper powder, salt and mix it well. (I add a little MTR's channa masala powder here, because I love how it tastes with the soy sauce and other ingredients. You may skip this if you wish to.)
  6. Add the fried cauliflower florets, give it a quick toss so the sauce is coated well.
  7. Remove it from the heat and serve it hot.
