Cauliflower Manchurian
The spicy North Indian curry Cauliflower Manchuriyan. I ve prepared this curry many times, but this is the recipe which I got from my dear friend Kavita. Actually It tasted better than the one I used to prepare.


Cauliflower 1 small.
Capsicum 1 medium
Onion 1 big
Maida 4 tbsp
Rice powder 2 tbsp
Cornflour 2 tbsp
Ginger garlic paste 2 tsp
Red chilli powder 1 tsp
Salt to taste


Ginger 1" chopped
Garlic, chopped 1 tsp
Green chillies, chopped 2
Chilly sauce to taste
Soya sauce 1 tsp
Tomato puree 1 cup
Coriander leaves, chopped 1 tbsp
Salt to taste


Cut the Cauliflower in to florets and soak in salt water for 15 minutes. Then drain and keep aside.
Cut Capsicum and onion in to big pieces.

In a mixing bowl put little water, then add salt, red chilli powder, maida, rice powder, cornflour and ginger garlic paste. It should be a thick paste. Marinate the florets with this paste and keep for 10 more minutes.

Heat oil in a kadahi. When it is hot put marinade florets and fry well and crisp.
Keep the fried florets aside.

Remove the oil from the kadahi leaving little oil.
Add chopped garlic, ginger and green chillies fry for a while.
Then add chopped onion, saute till it is translucent.
Add capsicum, fry for few more minutes.
Then add cauliflowers, tomato puree, salt and mix well. Let the puree cooked for some time.
