Gobi 65 Recipe | Cauliflower 65 | Crispy Cauliflower Fry | Cauliflower Pakoda

In my school days, I always force mum to make cauliflower recipes since it was my favourite during those days. The cauliflower recipes that I prefer changes over time. When I was in the hostel, we friends order Gobi Manchurian and Gobi 65 from a nearby hotel. After marriage, I always make Egg Dipped Cauliflower or Gobi Masala dosa since Jany prefers it that way. Now, for Happy, I make this Gobi 65 since she prefers it this way. This can also be served as a starter for Kids party and they will enjoy it. Let us move on to the recipe and do check out my paneer 65 and Chicken 65 recipes.
Cauliflower - 1 medium sized
Corn flour - 2 tblsp
Maida - 2 tblsp or Gram Flour(kadala Mavu) - 2 tblsp
Thick curd - 2 tblsp
Ginger garlic paste - 1 tsp
Red chilli powder - 2 tsp
Baking soda - a pinch
Salt - as required
Curry leaves - 1 sprig(To Garnish)

1. Remove the florets from the cauliflower and parboil it in water for 5 minutes. Add 1/2 tsp of salt while boiling. You can also add 1/4 tsp of turmeric powder.(I skipped it)
2. Drain the water completely and set it aside. Meanwhile, in a wide bowl add all the other ingredients except curry leaves. Then add enough water and make a smooth batter.(like bajji batter). Add the parboiled cauliflower and coat it well with the batter. Allow it to marinate for 30 to 45 mins. (You can skip marination and fry directly too)
3. Now, heat oil in a kadai and fry the cauliflower in batches. Fry the curry leaves as well for garnishing. Drain it from the oil and rest it on the tissue paper to absorb excess oil.
Serve when it is warm. I served it with Paneer Fried Rice.(will be sharing the recipe tomorrow)
Points to remember:
  • Make sure not to overcook the cauliflower. It should hold its shape and should not shrink. 
  • If you don't prefer maida, then you can replace it with gram flour. 
  • To make it a little more crispy, add a spoon of rice flour.
Warm Regards,
