Instructions for making Baked Gobi Manchurian

First let us blanch the cauliflower. 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.

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. Bake the cauliflower in a preheated oven at 200 Celsius for 25 minutes. Turn the cauliflower florets once after 15 minutes so they get roasted evenly. After 25 minutes the cauliflower should be perfectly roasted and crispy. Set aside the oven baked roasted cauliflower onto a bowl.

Take a pan and add in the peanut oil. Add in the minced garlic and ginger. Saute for a few seconds. Add in the diced onion and capsicum. Saute for a minute. Do not cook for long. We need the veggies to retain their crunch. Add in the soya sauce, tomato ketchup, red chilli sauce, vinegar, salt, sugar and black pepper powder. Saute for a minute. Add in a few tablespoon of water to dilute the sauce. Let the sauce cook for a couple of minutes more. Add in the baked roasted cauliflower florets to the pan. Toss well to coat. Super delicious and super healthy oven baked gobi manchurian / cauliflower manchurian is ready.
