Gobi Manchurian (cauliflower fritters )

We always have cauliflower in the fridge, we use it in Indian dishes main or parathas, but still it's very versatile vegetable. And we all love Indo chinese food. So that time Gobi (also know as fulgobhi in northern India) comes very handy. I like to make south east food at home. This time it was indo chinese mood. Take some florets , put them in batter, deep fry it and put them in sauce or no sauce. it's your choice. I don't like to use any food coloring in my food so you can see it's not like restaurant like red.But the taste is there. that's the most important thing right. Enough of chit chat. Lets go to the kitchen.

15 - 20 small pieces of cauliflower
1/2 cup white flour
1/2 cup rice flour
1 tsp soya sauce ( i use light soya sauce)
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp chili sauce to give red color
salt to taste
enough water to make batter

three G's are necessary in Chinese cooking
Ginger ( 2 tsp finely chopped),
Garlic (6-7 big cloves finely chopped)
Green chilies 2 finely chopped (pref. Thai chilies for spicyness but you can use any green chilies)
1 Green Capsicum
1 carrot
1 onion (all cut in same size)
7-8 florets of broccoli
2 tbsp soya sauce
1tbsp chili sauce
dash of vinegar
2 tbsp tomato ketchup
1 1/2 tbsp sesame oil

Heat oil for deep frying in a deep bottomed pan.
In a bowl, combine white flour, rice flour, garlic powder, salt, chili sauce and water to make a thick paste.
Dip florets in to the batter so they well coated.
place each floret in to the hot oil.
Deep fry til it is cooked and batter change it color.
remove on to paper and keep it aside while you make sauce for it.

Heat oil in wok, add ginger , garlic and green chilies. Stir fry for a few seconds.
Add all the vegetables, mix it together, cook it only for 2-3 minutes, you don't need mushy vegetables.
Add deep fry florets.
Add soya sauce, Chili sauce, tomato ketchup, vinegar. Mix together everything for 2-3 minutes  If you think it's too thick add 3-4 tbsp of water to mix it good.
If you wish garnish with green onion or coriander leaves.

You can eat this as side dish or main dish as you like.
