Chilli Gobi / Chilli Cauliflower

Ingredients 
Gopi / Cauliflower – 1/2 of 1 medium size head , cut in to florets 
Any colored bell Peppers / capsicum – 1 to 2 (use different colors if you have’em) 
Onion – 1 medium size 
Garlic – 3 to 4 no’s chopped 
Red chili powder – 1 Tb Sp (Optional , I used Kashmiri chili)
Tomato Ketchup – 2 to 3 Tb Sp 
Green onion’s – for garnishing  
For Batter 
All purpose flour – 1/4 cup (Approx) 
Corn Flour – 2 Tb Sp 
Tomato ketchup – 2 Tb Sp
Soy Sauce – 2 Tb sp
Egg – 1 (optional) 
Water – if the batter looks thick , add little water to make it loose. 
Salt 
Oil for frying 
Method 
* Make batter with the ingredients given for ” Batter ” , sprinkle little water if it looks thick ,
  Keep aside.
(May omit egg and make the batter with water  but egg helps to bind all the ingredients well and prevents’em from sticking while frying) 
* Boil florets in water with a pinch of turmeric (optional) and salt just for 10 minutes.

* Drain and dip these semi – cooked florets in the batter.

* Heat oil in a non stick pan , shallow fry these batter – coated florets ,till light brown and looks crispy from out side. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate.

                                                     For the sauce/Gravy

Cut the peppers in to different shapes…if possible use different colored peppers 
To make the dish little more interesting 😉 

* In an other pan , heat 2 Tb Sp oil (may use the same oil in which the florets were fried)
   add first the chopped garlic pieces , followed by onion , saute just for few minutes in high heat.

*Add in the capsicum / peppers and stir in high heat for another few minutes (3 minutes Approx) and then add Red chili Powder (if using)

*  Add then the sauces (tomato sauce , soy sauce) and then the fried florets , stir till the florets are nicely coated with the gravy/sauce , keeping heat in medium to low.

I added the rest of the batter too along with the sauces  , didn’t want to waste it ,
it makes the gravy little thick but  it may spoil the color and look of the dish….so its optional

* Add a pinch of salt , stir and keep the heat to medium-low , may sprinkle little water (it helps to combine all flavors well) cook for 5 minutes and switch off the heat.

*Transfer to a serving bowl , garnish with chopped green onion.

Serve with fried rice.

Enjoy

Cheers
