  • 1/2 cauliflower- separated into bite-size florets
  • 3 green onions
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1- 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1/2 inch ginger root, chopped
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tsp vinegar
  • 2 tsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp sweet chilli sauce
  • 1/2 cup wheat flour
  • 2 tbsp arrowroot powder
  • 1 tsp black pepper powder
  • salt
  • 1 tbsp Saffola oil

How to make Baked Gobhi Manchurian


For the Sauce:

  • Heat Saffola Oil in a pan. Cook chopped onions over medium heat till it turns transparent. Then add chopped green onions, ginger and garlic and cook for 1 minute
  • Once heated through, add soy sauce, vinegar, sweet chilli sauce, tomato paste
  • Cook on low heat for 1 min till all the ingredients are incorporated well. Tomato paste acts as a thickening agent so the sauce sticks to the cauliflower florets very well.

For Manchurian:

  • Add wheat flour, arrowroot powder, salt, pepper, water in a bowl and whisk the ingredients well to make a batter
  • Then add the cauliflower florets in the batter and mix it well so that all the florets get coated with the batter
  • Place the coated cauliflower on a baking tray and bake for 15-20 mins at 200 deg C
  • After baking, add the florets in the sauce that was prepared earlier and mix well
  • Garnish with green onions and Serve Hot!
