CHILLI GOBHI

Chilli Gobhi is a lip smacking stater recipe similar to Gobhi Manchurian.It is made out of deep fried cauliflower florets in maida and corn flour batter mixed with a variety of sauces.This Indo-Chinese dish is my daughter’s favorite and I made this for her some time back.This easy recipe can be made in 15 minutes if all ingredients are kept ready.It forms a good side dish for fried rice besides being a tasty snack.If you don’t want to serve it dry as I have done,you make add water and make it a gravy consistency.The tricky part is to keep the cauliflower florets crispy,so mix it with sauces and serve as and when you eat.

Keep cauliflower florets in boiling water to remove germs.This recipe is popular among children,so prepare a bit more than planned,I am sure you won’t have anything left behind.If you like add some rice flour to make the florets crispy,but I was fine this recipe,so didn’t add.Few of the recipes use ajinomoto or chinese salt,but due to many mentions about it’s usage regarding health point of view,I perfer not adding it.Over to the recipe now..
