Gobi Manchurian



Gobi Manchurian is a wonderful appetizer and a great side dish for fried rice and is immensely popular Indo Chinese dish.This fusion food is a flavorful and delicious starter and one of my favorite.I made this dry to suit my taste,but can make it with gravy by adding vegetable stock.Try this you will surely love it.



Ingredients
Cauliflower florets- 4 cups
corn flour- 1/3 cup
Maida- 3 tsp
salt to taste
pepper powder- 3/4 tsp
oil

For the sauce
Onion - 1 small
Spring onions chopped - a hand full

 Garlic cloves- 3-4
Ginger chopped- 1 tsp
Tomato sauce- 1/3 cup
Soya sauce- 2 tbs

sugar- 1 tsp
Chilly sauce- 1 tbs

 Vegetable stock/water- 1/3 cup
Corn starch- 1 tsp

Mix flour, corn flour, pepper powder and salt with water to form a batter( thinner than dosa batter). Dip the florets into this and deep fry them till crispy and set aside.

Heat oil in a pan and add ginger and garlic and fry till there is a nice aroma. Add onion and saute till it changes color. Now add soya sauce, tomato sauce,chilly sauce and sugar and mix well. Mix in corn starch with water or stock and let  this come to a boil and thicken. Now add the fried cauliflower florets,spring onion and coat well and stir till it is almost dry.

Spicy Kerala Chicken Roast is another nadan recipe and a family favorite. It is a dry version and is great accompaniment with rice, chapathi or fried rice.The chicken in this recipe is usually deep fried or shallow fried, (some times whole stuffed chicken ) and then coated with the masala.

Meat Ball Curry/Kofta Curry

Meat Ball Curry/Kofta Curry
Today's recipe is a delicious meat ball/ kofta curry which goes well with rice, pulao or naan. If you want to try something different for dinner try this kofta curry. This is a great dish to serve when you have friends over for dinner. Kofta curry is definitely worth a try-juicy and tender meat balls are cooked in a  rich tangy mildly spiced tomato based gravy enriched with aromatic spices.

The first time I tried the kofta curry was in Delhi and it was creamy  rich curry with lots of fresh cream and the meat balls were cooked over charcoal for a smoky flavor. So if you want that authentic flavor try barbecuing the meatballs before adding to the gravy. I wanted to try my own version of kofta curry and added cashew nut paste instead of cream and my family enjoyed for dinner with vegetable pulao and naan .For a richer, creamier texture you can also add cream. You can use minced mutton of beef or even try a vegetarian version of this curry with mashed pota…
