Total Preparation Time : 35 Minutes
As winter has started we cauliflower are easily available in market. And as discussed earlier about the fact, that cauliflower are at it's beat in winter's.So it's time to satisfy our craves with different variation of gobi...
Chilli (spicy) Gobi (Cauliflower)  is the result of the adaptation of Chinese cooking and seasoning techniques to suit Indian tastes.  In its two-stage preparation, the first stage requires preparing a spiced corn flour batter, dipping cauliflower florets in it and deep frying them. In the second stage, the deep fried florets are sauteed with chopped onion, capsicum, garlic, etc. in soy and chili sauce.
There are two different variants of chilli gobi, dry and with gravy. Both variants are prepared by using common ingredients like cauliflower, corn flour, maida flour/all purpose flour, spring onion, capsicum, soy sauce, chili sauce, minced garlic, ground pepper, etc. and has typical garnish of spring onion.Its taste can vary from mild spicy to hot and fiery based on the recipe and personal preference.
