Gobi Manchurian – 2 Ways Cauliflower Manchurian (Dry and Gravy)

Gobi Manchurian is a popular Indian-Chinese recipe of fried cauliflower florets tossed in a spicy, sweet & umami sauce. There are two ways to make this dish and you get the awesomeness of both in this post.

The Classic Gobi Manchurian

In Hindi ‘Gobi’ means Cauliflower. ‘Manchurian’ stands for the Manchurian sauce which is made with sautéed spring onions (scallions), capsicum (bell pepper), green chillies, ginger and garlic in a mix of soy sauce, tomato ketchup and chilli sauce.

In simple words, the Classic Gobi Manchurian is made with batter coated, fried, crispy cauliflower florets tossed in this spicy, sweet, hot and umami manchurian sauce.

The addition of tomato ketchup gives the manchurian sauce sweet notes and makes it different from the chilli sauce which we make for Chilli Gobi or Chilli Paneer. More amount of green chillies are added in Chilli Gobi as compared to Gobi Manchurian.

As I have mentioned above there are two ways to make this recipe. The dry version can be had as a starter or appetizer snack. The gravy version can be served with steamed rice, vegetable fried rice or noodles.

Fairly easy to prepare, my recipes are not very spicy like the Indian restaurants or the street versions. If you want, you can add more of the ginger, garlic and green chilies and increase the spice and heat in the dish.

About this Dry Gobi Manchurian Recipe

  1. Pan Fried: To cut down the fat, I have not deep fried the gobi florets. It does reduce the crispness, though. But as a healthier option, I have pan fried the gobi florets. If you prefer, you can deep fry the batter coated cauliflower florets for more crispiness. Pro Tip: To make the florets more crispy, chop them in small sizes and deep fry.
  2. Color: The gobi manchurian dry that we get outside has a good amount of red color added to the batter. Here, no artificial colors are added. To get an orangish color, you can increase the amount of Kashmiri red chili powder or deghi mirch. This will also add some heat and a smoky flavor.
  3. No MSG or Ajinomoto: I never add Ajinomoto in any Indian-Chinese recipes that I make at home. If you prefer to get a street style taste, then you can add a pinch of it.
  4. Soy sauce – Use naturally fermented soy sauce if possible. You can even use Bragg Liquid Aminos or Tamari. Do use a good quality soy sauce.
  5. Serving Suggestions:  I serve this gobi manchurian with roti (Indian flat bread) as we prefer it this way. You can can even have this dish as a starter snack with a dipping sauce like schezwan sauce or even red chili garlic chutney or tomato ketchup. You can also wrap it in a thin roti or tortilla or naan or pita bread and top with some shredded carrots, cabbage and onions along with some sauce.

How to make Gobi Manchurian Dry

Preparation

1. Firstly chop or break the gobi (cauliflower) in medium size or small florets. Heat water with salt and boil it. Rinse the cauliflower florets and add them to the hot water. Cover and let the cauliflower florets get blanched in the water for 15 to 20 minutes. Later drain and keep aside.

3. Add 1 cup + 1 tablespoon water and whisk to make a smooth batter without any lumps.

4. Dip each cauliflower floret in the batter.

Pan Frying Cauliflower Florets

5. Fry the batter coated cauliflower florets in hot oil. I have pan fried and added about 6 tablespoons oil. Later I have not added any oil while stir-frying the spring onions etc. You can also deep fry or shallow fry. I have fried in batches of three. So depending on the size of your pan, you can fry at once or in batches. The frying does take some time, so patience is the key.

6. When one side gets cooked and crisp, turn over each florets and pan fry the uncooked sides. Flip for a couple of times more, so that the florets are evenly fried and light golden.

7. Drain the fried cauliflower florets on a kitchen paper towel.

Gobi Manchurian with Sauce

This recipe of Cauliflower Manchurian Gravy (with sauce) is slightly healthy and super delicious to taste. You simply can’t stop eating it.

When I make veg fried rice or simple fried rice without any veggies, I prepare this gravy version.

A slightly healthy cauliflower manchurian gravy

  1. Without Maida (All Purpose Flour) – For the batter, I have used whole wheat flour (atta). Instead of whole wheat flour, you can also use all-purpose flour (maida).
  2. No Deep Frying – I have shallow-fried the cauliflower florets in just enough oil. However you can deep fry them if you want. Another healthier option would be to air fry them.
  3. No MSG– In all the Chinese meals that I cook at home, I do not add msg (monosodium glutamate or ajinimoto). So is the case in this recipe. However, if you want you can add a pinch of it to get a restaurant-style taste.
  4. Soy sauce – I always use naturally fermented soy sauce and recommend the same to my readers. Do use a good quality soy sauce.

Making this gobi manchurian gravy does take some time as the cauliflower florets need to be fried first. Then a spicy, umami and sour gravy is made to which the fried cauliflower florets are added.

Frying cauliflower takes time but making the sauce or gravy is easy and does not take much time.

Gobi manchurian gravy pairs very well with some steamed rice or noodles or fried rice. Also excellent with some roti or naan or khasta roti or tandoori roti.

  3. Dassana Thanks for this amazing recipe. Last time I shallow fried the florets. As you suggested it wasn’t crispy enough. I’ll be deep frying them this time. Could you advise if corn starch and corn flour are the same ?

    • welcome arvind. corn starch and corn flour are same.

  4. This turned out perfectly! I had to give myself a pat on the back! It tastes like something offered in a restaurant. Just one question though. I had some batter that was left over and was wondering what I could do with it. I ended up discarding it but can it be stored and used later or is there any other way to use it?5 stars

    • Thanks Anitha for your positive feedback. You can use any other veggie like potatoes, mushroom, french beans, broccoli or paneer with this batter.
