Fruits & Veggies Monday/Gobi manchurian (Cauliflower on Indian)🥬 🥦 🍅 🥕 🌶

in #fruitsandveggiesmondaylast year (edited)

Hello dear fruitsandveggiesfriends!

Today I have a delicious, Indian dish for you especially for friends of spicy cuisine 🤪

Manchurian is a very popular Indian dish that is cooked in Chinese style. It's basically fried cauliflower wrapped in pastry which is served in a thick sauce. It is usually served as a starter, but it can also be served as a main course with rice or Indian bread.

It is said that this dish was developed by a group of Chinese in eastern Kolkata (Kolkata) not long ago. During and after the Chinese Cultural Revolution under Mao Tse Tung, many Chinese succeeded in fleeing to India and establishing a new existence as a restaurant operator there. They developed a new fusion kitchen that quickly conquered India. "Gobi Manchurian" can be found today on almost every Indian menu.


Ingredients for 3-4 servings:

  • 1 medium cauliflower
  • Handful of spring onion green
  • 1 pitted red chili
  • 4-5 cloves of garlic
  • Piece of ginger
  • 1 tsp black mustard seeds
  • 7-8 teaspoons rice flour or cornstarch
  • 5 teaspoons wheat flour
  • 1 red onion
  • Chili sauce depending on the spicy you want
  • 3-4 tablespoons tamari soy sauce
  • Pepper to taste
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tsp paprika powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • about 1/2 cup water
  • oil



Cut cauliflower into florets and cook for about 2 minutes in salted water. Remove the cauliflower from the water and drain on a paper towel.


Mix 3 tablespoons of flour with 3 tablespoons of rice flour or cornstarch, salt and pepper. Add water gradually until a thick dough is formed.


Add the pre-cooked cauliflower to the flour-water mixture and cover completely with the dough. Then add 1 tablespoon of flour to the cauliflower and mix well.


Heat the oil in a pan and carefully add the cauliflower. When the cauliflower is golden yellow, remove from the pan and drain on a paper towel.


Heat 3 tablespoons of oil in a wok, sauté the cumin, garlic, red chilli, red onion and mustard seeds for about 5 minutes. Add spring onion green and finely grated ginger and fry for another 5 minutes. Add chilli powder and soy sauce and fry briefly.



Add the tomato paste and stir, add about 1/2 cup of water. Mix 1 tablespoon of cornstarch with a little water and tie the sauce with it. Season with salt and pepper. Add the cauliflower to the sauce and stir well.


Serve the cauliflower with green onion and rice 🌶
