1 small Cauliflower-cut into bite size florets,
1 tbsp ginger garlic paste,
5 tbsp all purpose flour,
5 tsp corn starch,
1 small Onion- finely chopped,
2 tbsp garlic-finely chopped,
1 green chilli-finely chopped,
2 tbsp tomato ketchup,
2 tbsp chilli-garlic paste,
2 tsp white vinegar,
3 tsp soya sauce,
1/2 cup green onions-chopped,
Oil for deep frying and
salt to taste.
Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a non-stick pan. Add finely chopped Onions, finely chopped garlic and the green chillies and cook till Onions are lightly browned. Now add tomato ketchup and chilli garlic sauce and cook until the oil separates in the pan. Now add Vinegar and soya sauce and mix well.
Mix 2 tsp of corn starch with around 4 tbsp of water and add to the above mixture and cook till the sauce thickens. Keep this Sauce aside.
For the batter, In a bowl take all purpose flour, the remaining 3 tsp corn starch, some salt, black pepper powder, ginger-garlic paste and some water. Mix well to form a smooth batter.
Dip the cauliflower florets in this batter and deep fry them on medium flame until light brown and crisp.
Now add the fried Cauliflower and some green onions to the prepared sauce and mix well to coat the cauliflower completely with sauce. Garnish with some green onions. Serve hot .
Its always better to make the sauce first and them add the fried florets to it. Because the manchurian will be crisp this way.
One can also boil the cauliflower for 5 minutes in the microwave, before adding them to the batter.
