Gobi Manchurian Recipe

Gobi ( Cauliflower) Manchurian is a very famous recipe in India. I know people who go to hotels just to eat this recipe. They feel that though it is possible to prepare Gobi Manchurian at home, it won't taste the way it does in the hotels. Why not? Nothing is impossible. Preparing Gobi manchurian in India is slightly tedious because the Gobi (Cauliflower) that we get in India has worms in them and hence we need to cook it in salted boiling water so that the worms are dead and can be easily removed. However in the US, we get all clean cauliflower and hence preparing Gobi manchurian is not that difficult.


1 medium Gobhi (Cauliflower)

1/2 cup All purpose Flour (Maida)

1 tbsp Corn Flour

Salt to taste

1 tsp chilli powder

1/4 cup spring onions finely chopped

3-4 flakes of garlic finely chopped

1-2 Chopped green chili

11/2 tbsp Garlic Paste

11/2 tbsp Ginger Paste

1 cup finely Chopped Onions Finely Chopped

Coriander Leaves

1/4th tsp Ajinomoto

2 tbsp Soya Sauce

2-3 tbsp Tomato Ketchup or chilli sauce

Oil for frying

Ghee (Cleared butter) 1tbsp


Make a paste with all purpose flour, corn flour and salt using water. This paste must be littile thick (Semi solid).
Take a tsp. of ginger and garlic paste, add it to the paste.

Add a tsp of chilli powder to the paste and mix well.

Cut the cauliflower into small florets.
Dip the Gobi florets in the paste and deep fry in oil till golden brown. Keep aside.

Heat Ghee in another pan and add 1tsp of ginger & garlic paste, chopped onions and green chili to it. Fry them till the oinion turns light brown.

Now add Spring onions and Garlic to it.
Now, mix aginomoto, soya sauce and tomato sauce/chilly sauce to it. Please note that aginomoto is not good for pregnant ladies and so avoiding it is good. Instead you can use salt.
Add fried Gobi kept aside and mix well.

Garnish it with coriander leaves. Serve the gobi manchurian hot.
