Cauliflower Manchurian Recipe
First, parboil cauliflower. Separate the florets and rinse them under running water. Boil florets in salted water until just tender. Drain and set aside.
The cooked florets are coated in batter made with a mixture of regular flour, corn flour or cornstarch, red chili powder and seasoning. The batter needs a thick consistency so it will coat the florets. Deep fry until golden.
The recipe requires double frying to achieve that beautiful crispy texture. To do this, fry in oil over high heat. These fried florets go straight into the lip-smacking Indo Chinese sauce.
To make the sauce for this cauliflower manchurian recipe, start with stir frying garlic, ginger and green chilies. Cook onions, bell peppers (capsicum) and spring onions (scallions) until just tender. Now, the sauces go in. This includes soy sauce, tomato sauce and a little chili paste for the heat.
Toss the florets in this sauce. Then garnish with spring onions (scallions).
