Ingredients

  • Cauliflower 3 cups approx. cut into small florets
  • All purpose flour - ¼ cup Maida
  • Corn flour - 2 tablespoon + 1 tablespoon starch/ white
  • Oil - 4 tablespoon
  • Curd - 2 tablespoon
  • Red chilli powder - 1 teaspoon
  • Garam masala powder - ¼ teaspoon
  • Turmeric - ¼ teaspoon
  • Garlic powder - 1 teaspoon or
  • Fresh garlic - 2
  • Curry leaves optional - 2 sprigs
  • Salt as needed

Instructions

  • Cut cauliflower into tiny bite size pieces. Let there be some stalk.
  • Boil water and add 1 teaspoon salt, ¼ teaspoon turmeric.
  • Add cauliflower to the boiling water and switch off the flame.
  • Let it be aside for 10 mins.
  • After 10 mins, drain water completely.
  • Add 2 tablespoon of corn flour and toss to coat the cauliflower well.
  • In a mixing bowl, add ¼ cup oil, red chilli powder, garam masala powder, salt and garlic powder. Mix well.
  • Add ¼ cup maida, 1 tablespoon corn flour and 2 tablespoon of curd. Mix to make a paste.
  • Add cauliflower florets to this mixture and mix gently to coat all the florets.
  • If needed sprinkle water so that the batter coats the cauliflower.
  • Let it be aside for 10-20 mins for marination.
  • Preheat oven at 200 deg C (400 F) for 10 mins.
  • In a baking tray, line aluminium foil or baking sheet.
  • Sprinkle oil and grease the sheet well.
  • Arrange the marinated cauliflower over the sheet in a single layer without overcrowding.
  • Make sure no excess batter is spread over the sheet while placing otherwise your gobi will have wings.
  • Place the tray in middle rack and bake for 16 minutes in total, stirring in between once.
  • Once done, I baked in grill mode for 4 mins. You can take this as optional step. The grilling time can be increased to achieve more golden/ crisp results.

Notes

  • I baked at 205 deg C as my oven allows to choose 5 deg. So if you can also do if you can.
  • I grilled in the same temperature and for just 4 mins as already my cauliflowers were roasted well.
  • Adding 2 tablespoon of corn flour earlier in step 6 is for the batter to stick to cauliflower better.
