Non-fry Version of Gobi Manchurian:
Mix maida (all purpose flour), Corn starch, Salt, Black pepper and Haldi in a bowl and add cauliflower florets. Now toss the bowl so all florets will be well coated. Set aside for 15-20 minutes.
In a pan, heat the oil and shallow fry the florets till they turn golden brown on the tips.
Now follow step 3 to step 5 of regular version to make Manchurian sauce.
How to make Gravy gobi Manchurian:
To eat with Fried rice, instead of making dry gobi Manchurian, gravy one will be more delicious.
To make gravy, mix 1 tbsp of corn starch powder in 1 cup of hot water( as per your quantity of gobi manchurian). After completion of five steps, add this mixture to Dry gobi manchurian and stir for a minute.
