Here is the step by step pictures of baked Gobi Manchurian dry recipe.
First let us blanch the cauliflower. Baking the cauliflower without blanching makes it very dry. So always blanch the cauliflower while making baked gobi manchurian. Cut the Cauliflower into florets. Make sure that the florets are not too small and all the florets are of a similar size so it bakes evenly in the oven. Bring a kettle / pan to a boil. Add a little turmeric and salt. Add the cauliflower to the kettle / pan. Boil for 5 minutes. After boiling, strain and set aside. The Gobi in Gobi Manchurian part is now prepped and ready.

Now we will make a coating for the cauliflower for our Baked Gobi Manchurian.
Take a bowl and add in the corn starch, maida and the rice flour. Add in the black pepper powder, salt and a little baking powder. The baking powder will help the cauliflowers nicely brown and crisp in the oven after roasting. Add a little water to the flour mixture and make a very thick batter.

Add in the blanched cauliflower to the batter and toss well to coat. Make sure that all the water is completely drained from the cauliflower. If the batter has become thin, sprinkle a few tablespoon of corn starch and toss. The batter should coat the cauliflower well.

Take a parchment lined sheet pan and place the cauliflower florets. The parchment is essential as the florets will otherwise stick to the pan.

    Do you think this will work with chicken? Any suggestion on what I can do if making chicken this way.

      Yes. Chicken will work. You can follow the same procedure. Keep the chicken pieces small and boneless so it cooks fast.

      The batter if watery to begin with, this can happen.
