Chilly Gobi/ Dry Cauliflower Fry

 With the continuous snowfall (DC metropolitan area receiving 6-8 inches) and schools cancelled, I wanted to make some hot delicious food for the family to cheer up. After dinner, the kids are now tucked in and here I and my better half are watching "we're the millers" and getting ready for one more snow day!


1/2 cauliflower
1 cup of all purpose flour( maida)
1/4 cup of corn flour
1/2 tsp of red chilly powder
oil for deep frying
salt as required

For the gravy:

1 red onion
1 capsicum(green bell pepper)
3 cloves of garlic chopped
1/2 inch of ginger chopped
1 green chilly chopped
2 tsp of soy sauce(dark soy)
1/2 tsp of crushed black pepper
1/2 tsp of red pepper flakes
1/2 tbsp of red chilly paste(Siracha sauce)
scallions for garnish 
1 tbsp of oil


1. Cut the cauliflower in to small florets. Cut the onion and capsicum in to small squares.
2. Prepare the batter -  First swift the dry ingredients together(all purpose flour, corn flour, red chilly powder and salt) and then add water. The consistency of the batter should be like dosa batter.
3. Add the cauliflower florets to the batter and then fry them in heated oil in the kadai. 

4. As the cauliflower turns golden brown,transfer to a plate.
5. Heat oil in the pan, add onion, capsicum, green chilly, ginger and garlic together. Saute well for 5 minutes in medium flame. 
6. Add the siracha sauce and soy sauce.Transfer the fried cauliflower to the pan. Then add black pepper and red pepper flakes and mix well.

7. Add the chopped scallions as garnish. Serve with roti/ naan.
