Gobi Manchurian

An Indo-Chinese dish that suits Indian taste. Process involves 2 parts : including part 1 as deep frying cauliflower florets dipped in flour batter while the second part is preparing gravy.  Manchuria can be prepared either as dry or with gravy.
I have prepared it as semi gravy manchurian so that it can be served either as starter or with rotis.

These are the ingredients i used :
1  big cauliflower (Gobi)
¼  cup rice flour
¼  cup all purpose flour
1 tbsp corn startch
1  tsp of red chilli powder
2  tsp corriander powder

1 big onion
2 bell peppers
4 green chillies
1/2  tsp of ginger-garlic paste
1 tbsp of  hot & sweet sauce
1 tbsp of tomato chilli sauce
Salt to taste
Oil to deep fry

Part 1 :
Wash and separate all the cauliflower florets.
Now, preparing batter for cauliflower coating :
1. Mix  rice flour, all-purpose flour, corn startch, salt to taste, red chilli powder, ginger garlic paste, 1 tsp corriander powder with water and make it as medium-to-thin paste.
2. Take oil to deep fry in a pan, dip each cauliflower floret into batter and place each dipped floret into oil. let it fry until golden brown and keep them aside.
3. Repeat the process, until all the florets are deep fried and keep them aside.

Part 2:
4. Chop onion, ¼  tsp of ginger garlic paste, green chillies, bell peppers and saute them.
5. Add 1 tsp corriander powder, salt to taste, cilantro to above mixture and switch off the flame.
6. Now, add hot & sweet sauce and tomato chilli sauce, mix all the manchurian together.
7. Now, slowly add all the deep fried cauliflower florets to the bell pepper gravy and stir altogether until well mixed.
