During this winter period the sun sets early and a cool air flows within the city and you get fresh vegetables. So, thinking about both these events , today the vegetarian snack that I have prepared is perfect for a winter evening is called Gobi 65 which can be accompanied by either tea or coffee.
Hope this preparation is liked by your family and friends alike when they drop in for an evening tea. This is not only simple but easy to make also.
1 medium Cauliflower
1 cup hung Curd
1 1/2 tbsp Ginger-Garlic paste
2 tbsp Rice flour
1/4 cup Cornflour
2 tbsp Kashmiri red chilly (or you can use red food color)
2-3 Green chilies, finely chopped
2 tsp Lemon juice
1/4 tsp Garam masala
Pinch of white pepper powder
Fistful of curry leaves
Salt to taste
Wash and clean the cauliflower and cut into bite size florets. In a container heat these florets with water and salt for 5 minutes. Drain and set aside. Now take a big bowl and add cornflour, rice flour, hung curd, ginger-garlic paste.
Mix green chilies, salt, red chilly powder, garam masala and mix well. Make sure that florets are nicely coated. Marinate this for at least an hour. Heat oil in a kadhai/deep frying pan and fry the florets in batches till golden and crispy. Drain out excess oil and transfer to paper towel. Serve hot with ketchup.
