GOBI 65 | CAULIFLOWER 65 – EASY STARTER RECIPES

Print Friendly and PDF
Yum
 
gobi 65 plate 1

I got this recipe from Aval vikatan’s “ 30 Restaurant style recipes” supplementary. Before i got this book, i used to try Chef.Damodaran’s recipe which is also similar to this.This recipe has dry kasoori methi leaves in addition.I have tried this several times and it comes out super crispy , tasty with nice flavour. We love it a lot. I usually make in weekends with veg pulao or biryani.Sometimes , i make it for my daughter alone after she comes from school.This is one of her favourite snacks.Red heart..U can prepare this recipe well in advance for parties or get together & fry it when required.The more time the cauliflower marinates , the tastier it would be..But u can try without marination too.. Please go through the Notes section for do’s & dont’s..

Gobi 65 with onions

INGREDIENTS
  • Gobi/Cauliflower – medium size flower (20 florets)
  • All purpose flour / Maida – 1/2 cup
  • Corn flour – 1/2 cup
  • Red color powder – 1/4 tsp
  • Red chilli powder or green chilli paste – 2 tsp
  • Ginger – garlic paste – 1.5 tsp
  • Garam masala powder – 1 tsp
  • Crushed fennel seeds -  1 tsp
  • Lime juice – Few drops
  • Dry Kasoori methi leaves – 1.5 tsp (crushed )
  • Salt & water – As needed
  • Cooking oil – To deep fry

METHOD
 
  • Remove the florets from the cauliflower & par boil it for 5 minutes adding salt..(turmeric powder is optional)
  • When the water roll boils , switch off the flame. Leave it for 3 minutes and drain the hot water completely & wash it in cold water immediately to avoid over cooking of cauliflower.Drain all the water completely.

  • Now in a wide bowl ,add all the powders ,crushed spices & salt ,lime juice mix well .Add water carefully to make bajji batter consistency.The batter should fall like a ribbon..Now put the florets,mix well & marinate for 2-3 hours.Cauliflower should be well coated with flour..( watery batter absorbs more oil)

Super crispy gobi 65 is ready !! Enjoy eating hot with tomato sauce !!


 

 
NOTES
  • It will stay crispy for 30 minutes..But for best taste , u should eat it hot hot !!
  • While u make the batter add less water & bring to bajji batter consistency. If u add more water , it may absorb more oil..Adding less water & more flour makes it hard.. Please be careful while adding water.Approximately it takes 1 to1.25 cup of water i guess..No problem if u add more water , add some more flour to bring the right consistency
  • If u feel adding maida is unhealthy , add rice flour instead of maida.Or u can try only with corn flour..
  • Adding food color is optional .But it gives a nice look to the fries like we get in restaurants..Winking smile
