Ingredients Serving: 5

  1. 2 cup cauliflower florets
  2. 1/2 cup spring onion and capsicum, thinly sliced( optional)
  3. 1 Medium Onion, Finely Chopped
  4. 1 Tbsp Garlic, finely chopped
  5. 1-2 green chilies, finely chopped 
  6. 1/2 tsp ginger garlic paste
  7. 1 tbsp Corn Flour
  8. 2 tsp white vinegar
  9. 2 tsp chili garlic sauce
  10. 1-2 tsp soya sauce
  11. 1/4 tsp black pepper powder
  12. Salt to taste
  13. oil
  14. spring onion for garnishing
  15. For marination:
  16. 2-3 tbsp Cornflour
  17. 2 tsp chili garlic sauce
  18. 1/4 tsp black pepper powder
  19. 1/2 tsp soya sauce
  20. Salt


  1. First of all blanch cauliflower florets in hot water till it is half done. Now drain it in a colander and wait till all extra water is drained . Now add all ingredients mentioned under marination section, mix well and keep aside for 10-15 mins for marination.
  2. Now heat 1 tbsp oil in a non stick wok and saute cauliflower florets on medium heat stirring occasionally till they become nice golden and crisp. Cover it with lid in between sautéing to ensure even cooking of florets. Keep aside for later use. 
  3. Now heat 2 tsp oil in the same wok and add chopped garlic and chilies, let it be golden then add chopped onions .
  4. Fry till onions become little golden. Add capsicum and spring onion, saute for 2-3 mins on medium flame. Add ginger garlic paste and saute for a minute.
  5.  Now mix 1 tbsp corn flour, 2 tsp chilli garlic sauce, soya sauce and vinegar in 1/2 cup water( you can adjust these as per your taste preference) . Add this to wok slowly, stirring constantly .  *Add water as per your preference of consistency, either you want it dry or with curry. I made with curry as my kids love to dig in curry more than pieces, so added sufficient water. 
  6. Now add black pepper powder and mix well. ** Amount of seasoning , corn flour and sauces also depend on how much water you are adding, so adjust accordingly.
  7.  Let it boil and add salt and fried cauliflower florets to it. Mix well and cook for another 4-5 mins , till every thing is well done.
  8.  Now switch off the flame and garnish with spring onions. 
  9. If serving for tea time snacks then don't add much water and serve immediately to have it crunchy and crispy. Otherwise serve with roti / paratha/ poori / fried rice in lunch or dinner. It can be a perfect lunch box option too, for you and your kids. 
  10. It's very simple yet delicious treat that can be prepared in jiffy , even if you have some unexpected guest at your home and want to serve them something special, delicious yet quick.
