Gobhi Manchurian

Its surprising that I never made this till now. I always made vegetable manchurian, never gobhi. But it turned out out pretty tasty.

Preparation Time: 10 min
Cooking Time: 20-30-min
Serves: 3-4


1 small gobhi / cauliflower florets
oil for deep frying

Batter for dipping
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1 tblsp cornflour
1 medium onion finely chopped
1 tsp ginger-garlic paste
salt to taste

Final tempering
1 medium onion finely chopped
1 tsp ginger-garlic paste
2 tblsp soy sauce
1 tblsp green chilli sauce
3 tblsp tomato ketchup
2 tblsp oil
finely chopped dhaniya/cilantro leaves
salt to taste


  1. Mix all ingredients under batter along with water to make a thick batter.
  2. Dip gobhi/cauliflower florets in this batter and deep fry till golden brown. Keep aside.
  3. Heat 2 tblsp oil in a stir-fry pan and saute onions. Add ginger-garlic paste.
  4. Fry for 1-2 min and add soysauce, chilli sauce, tomato ketchup and salt. Fry for another 2 min.
  5. Add fried gobhi florets. Mix well. Garnish with dhaniya leaves. Serve hot with veg soft noodles or chinese fried rice.


  • To make manchurian in a gravy, add 1 tblsp cornflour mixed with 1 1/2 cup water during tempering. Boil well till the gravy becomes transparent. Add the fried florets now.
