Cornflour - 3 tbsps
Ginger-garlic paste - 1 tsp
Soya sauce - 1 tsp
Tomato sauce - 2 tsp

For the gravy or sauce:

Green chillies chopped into tiny pieces - 2-3 nos.
Coriander leaves chopped- a bunch

Chilli sauce - 1 tbsp
Tomato sauce - 2 tbsp
Vinegar - 1/2 tsp
Pepper powder 1 tsp
Sugar - 1/2 tsp

 Here is the direction:

           Leave the cauliflower florets in hot water for about 5 minutes to clean it,drain.Mix all the ingredients for marinate with cauliflower and set aside for 3-4 hours(not necessary).Heat oil in a pan for deep frying.Place the marinated cauliflower into the hot oil.fry till it turns golden brown and keep it aside.

            Now we jump to the preparation of sauce or gravy.Heat oil in a large pan,add chopped garlic,green chillies and ginger,stir fry for a few seconds.Now add chopped onions and stir fry for sometimes.Then add the sliced capsicum,coriander leaves and spring onion and stir fry for another 5-6 minutes.They should retain their crunch.

         The final touch up goes with adding all the sauces and cook for about 2-3 minutes.
Now add pepper powder,sugar and salt to taste.Lastly add the deep fried gobi and keep on high flame for 3-4 minutes.
      If you want to make it a gravy one, before adding the fried gobi;add 1 tbsp cornflour dissolved in cold water. And just before serving add the fried cauliflower into this goes well with noodles and fried rice..
