Gobi 65

Ingredients to make Gobi 65

  • 1 large sized cauliflower
  • 1/3 cup corn flour
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour/maida
  • 1/2 tsp pepper powder
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tsp chilli powder
  • 1 tsp ginger-garlic paste
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp garam masala
  • 1/4 tsp red food color (optional)
  • water as needed for batter
  • oil to deep fry florets

How to make Gobi 65

  1. First separate the cauliflower florets, then wash and blanch them in hot water for a few mins. Now drain the water using a colander and set aside.
  2. In a bowl, add the all purpose flour, corn flour, pepper powder, chilli powder, salt, ginger-garlic paste, red food color, lime juice and mix well. Add enough water and make a lump free thick batter.
  3. Meanwhile start heating up the oil in a pan/kadai to fry the florets. Now dip the blanched florets one by one and deep fry or take the florets to a bowl and pour the batter on them, stir until its well coated without breaking any floret. Drop one by one into the oil. (I chose the second way.)
  4. Fry them on medium heat. Once they are crispy and fried, either you serve them instantly or deep fry a second time for extra crispiness.
  5. When all are fried, serve them with dip of your choice or as a side to fried rice/jeera rice, etc.

My Tip:

Fry the florets on medium heat. Do not over crowd the pan while frying.
