How to make Super Crispy Chilli Gobi

  1. Wash the cauliflower neatly and cut it into bite sized pieces. Then boil water and add 1/2 tsp of salt to it.
  2. Blanch the chopped cauliflower pieces for about 3 minutes in it. Then drain the hot water and keep the cauliflower under cold running water to stop excess cooking.
  3. To the cauliflower pieces, add in the ginger-garlic paste, pepper powder, salt to taste, 1/4 cup corn flour and mix it well. Let this rest in the refrigerator for about an hour.
  4. To prepare the the batter, mix in the all purpose flour, 1/4 cup corn flour and salt as per taste. Add 1 tbsp oil and incorporate it well into the flour mixture.
  5. Add water little by little to form a thick paste. (The consistency of the paste should be such that number '8' drawn on the surface should be visible and stay for a few seconds.) Whisk the batter well to incorporate air.
  6. Mix the marinated cauliflower pieces into the flour paste and coat the pieces well with the paste.
  7. Heat oil to deep fry. Then deep fry the cauliflower pieces in batches on a medium flame till they are 3/4th done.
  8. Once all the batches are fried, add in all the cauliflower pieces into the hot oil and fry for a few minutes on a high flame till they turn golden brown in colour. Then remove the cauliflower pieces onto a kitchen towel to remove the excess oil.
  9. To prepare the sauce, heat oil in a pan. Add in the chopped garlic, ginger and chillies. Fry it for 2 minutes.
  10. Then add in the sauces and mix it well. Next, pour in about 1/4 cup of water to the pan and allow it to come to a boil.
  11. Mix in 1 tbsp of corn flour with water, pour this into the pan and mix it well.
  12. Allow the sauce mixture to thicken, then add in sugar to balance the flavours. Add salt to taste and adjust accordingly.
  13. Once the sauce mixture thickens, turn off the flame and allow it to cool. Then add in the chopped spring onion and mix well.
  14. Finally, add the fried cauliflower pieces and mix it well.
  15. Serve it immediately.

My Tip:

Double frying the cauliflower pieces give this recipe that extra crisp. This is extremely important Allow the sauce mixture to cool before adding the cauliflower pieces. Ensure that the steam from the sauce mixture is removed to a great extent, hence reducing absorption of the moisture content in the cauliflower. This helps in retaining the crispiness even if it's kept aside for sometime.
