GOBHI 65


This is inspired from a South Indian spicy non veg snack, Chicken 65. Vegetarians can replace the chicken with cauliflower and relish it too. This is a nice and crispy snack and has to be served immediately after making. You can half fry the florets with the batter and do the finishing touches just before serving.


 Ingredients:
Cauliflower ... 1 small
Ginger paste ... 1 tsp
Garlic paste .. 1 tbsp
Maida ............ 3 tbsps
Rice flour ... 2 tbsps
Corn flour ...... 2 tbsps
Red chilli powder .. 1 tsp (add more if you like)
 Garam masala powder .. 1 tsp
 Kesari colour ... 1 pinch
Curry leaves .. 2 sprigs
Green chillies .. 3-4 slit
Yogurt....... 2 tbsps
Salt ......... to taste
Oil ......... to fry

Method:

Cut the cauliflower into big florets. Boil it for half a minute with little salt.







Drain the water. Sprinkle some spice powders and set aside.









Mix the flours together adding salt, ginger garlic paste, red chilli powder, garam masala and a pinch of saffron colour.






Make a thick batter.









Tip in the cauliflower pieces into the batter. Alternatively you can also dip each piece separately before frying.







Heat oil in a pan and fry the cauliflower pieces coated with the batter.
Fry them to a very crispy texture on medium flame.








Remove on a paper towel and set aside.








Just before serving heat a little oil in a pan. Add curry leaves and slit green chillies.






Add a little turmeric powder and dhaniya jeera powder.










Saute and add the yogurt. Stir quickly to avoid curdling.









Now tip in the fried cauliflower pieces and saute for a minute.









Add some coriander leaves. Serve it as a snack or a side dish with dal chawal.
