Cauliflower Manchurian

 I had this posting in my draft for a couple of months, but forgot to blog it
 I was tempted to make this manchurian ever since I saw it in a website. I was so tempted to make it and see how my family will respond!

So here it is...

Cauliflower cut into florets
Oil for frying

For the batter:
3 tbsp. corn flour
5 tbsp. All purpose flour
Salt and pepper to taste
Water 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp.

For the gravy

Oil – 1 Tbsp


Onion – 1/2 medium, chopped finely

Green Chilies – to taste, cut diagonally

Garlic – 3 large cloves, chopped finely

Tomato Ketchup 2tbsp
Chilli Sauce 2 tbsp
Soy Sauce – 4 tsp

White Vinegar – 2 tsp

Water – 4 Tbsp + as much you want for the gravy

Corn flour 2 tsp

Green Onions – 2 stalks


  •  Heat Oil in a medium non-stick pan.
  • Add Onions, Green Chilies and Garlic and cook until Onions are light brown.
  • Add ketchup and chilli sauceand cook until Oil starts to separate from mixture.
  • Add Soy Sauce and Vinegar and mix well.
  • Mix 2 tsp Corn flour with 4 Tbsp Water and add it to the pan. Cook for 1-2 minutes until sauce starts to thicken.
  • Keep sauce aside
  • Boil water and dunk the cauliflower florets in them. Turn off the heat and cover with a lid. drain the water after 3 mins.
  •  To make batter, add All-purpose flour, Corn Starch, Salt, Black Pepper and Water to a small bowl. Mix until there are no lumps.
  •  Coat Cauliflower pieces well with batter and deep fry until Cauliflower is a medium dark brown color.
  •  Finish frying all of the Cauliflower and add it to the pan with the sauce. Toss well to coat Cauliflower completely.
  •  Add Green Onions and serve.
