Gobhi 65 with the special Crispy n Soft bites


Cauliflower, a vegetable that is beautiful by its name is also a beauty in its taste and look. Nature is simply great.. the way it makes flowers and vegetables and trees and plants and this and that n everything around. Everything is so unique when it comes to nature. Cauliflower i feel is also a beautiful creation. Ever looked at it closely - tiny pearls cluttered  together that give the look of beautiful flowers which are bundled again to look like a dense bouquet. The beautiful creamy color, the soft but grainy texture and the green fresh leaves around them to add to its beauty. Its really a wonder. God and nature might have taken a long time to decide how this vegetable would look :)

I love this vegetable fried or boiled or chopped or grated ... just cooked beautifully to give the magical taste. This recipe is a simple call for those taste buds that need to be satiated pleasingly. Its easy and simple and sure to win hearts.

It serves as a perfect appetizer at parties too. Do a little homework a little ahead of time and surprise your friends with a delicious munch

Serves... 4-5 ppl
Serve option... Hot with ketchup

This is what u'll need....

Cauliflower - 1
Turmeric - 1/2 tsp
Red chilli powder - 1 tspn
Corn Flour - 1 tbspn
All-purpose flour/Maida - 2 tbspn
Gg paste
Oil to fry
Curry leaves and Onion rings for garnish
Salt to taste

Here is the stir....
  • Remove the leaves from the floret and break it into small pieces. It just needs gentle snips to break them up. Toss these into a pan of water and give a good rinse to get away from little common worms that might be hiding. Wash off thoroughly and then fill the pan with clean water again to get them a quick boil
  • Toss in turmeic and salt into the pan with cauliflower pieces and turn on the the heat on high flame. When it comes to a rolling boil reduce the flame and simmer for a couple of minutes. Pour this through a strainer to drain the excess water out
  • Transfer this to a working bowl and add gg paste, turmeric powder, red chilli powder,   corn flour, maida and little salt
  • Use a spoon or fork to mix it all around gently to get all the masala coated evenly on the cauliflower pieces. You might want to rest these in the refrigerator for 30 mins or so if you have time 
  • Heat oil in a kadhai and when it gets hot drop the pieces one by one  into the oil. Fry till they turn crisp and golden brown
  • Drain them on a paper towel and then transfer them to serving bowls 
  • Garnish with freshly cut onion rings and deep fried, crisp curry leaves

  • It doesnt take the cauliflower too long to cook as we have already given it a boil. Keep it on medium-high flame to get the color and crispiness
  • You can try adding a little lemon juice for an extra tangy flavor
  • Refrigeration is not necessary but when I make it advance, I would think of it as a marination step
