  • Cut cauliflower into bite size florets. I like to have smaller size florets for semi gravy, and it is your wish to go for larger size florets.
  • Dilute 1 tbsp of corn flour/starch in 1/2 cup of water and keep aside, we require it in the later stage.
  • Make a medium consistency paste with cornflour and maida with the little salt. Dip cauliflower florets into this flour paste.
  • 3.Heat cooking oil in a pan, once oil becomes hot, add dipped cauliflower florets. And deep fry them by flipping occasionally. Remove it, once they become golden brown and crispy on all the sides. They get cooked n crispy easily, adjust your flame from high to medium if they getting burnt.
  • In a pan add a tsp of cooking oil followed by chopped garlic. And saute for a minute, or till it becomes soft.
  • Keep the flame in very low mode, quickly add soya sauce, tomato sauce, green chili sauce, red chili sauce.

  • Gently mix deep fried florets with this gravy, so that the florets gets covered with the sauce evenly. And serve hot with roti / flat bread, sandwiches.
