One thing to remember while cooking gobi Manchurian or any other chinese dish is to keep the flame high and cook faster, keep the veggies a bit raw, you should be able to feel the crunch of vegetables in your mouth. So, here is the full written gobi Manchurian step by step recipe to make at home.
How to make Gobi Manchurian :
Now take ½ cup Corn flour and 5 tbsp of Maida in a big bowl and start making a smooth batter by adding some salt and 1 cup of water regularly. The mixture needs to be soft and in running consistency, not very thick and not very thin either.
Now, add the florets to the batter and let it drowned for a while, about 15- 20 minutes.
Do not keep the fried florets a long time, freshly fried florets will give the crunch in every bite. Otherwise, they will become a bit soggy. And also do not overcook them.
Preparing the sauce :
Add some chopped onion and saute again for 1 minute on high flame. You can add some chopped capsicum as well if you want.
Now, start drizzling the sauces( soy, vinegar, red chili sauce) and green chilies. Add tomato ketchup as well. And allow it cook for about a minute, if you need to add a little water, you can add a thin mixture of water and maida. It is an excellent mixture which helps the Manchurian sauce to gets thicken and coat well with the florets as well. You can also use the schezwan sauce in this Gobi Manchurian recipe, in case you want it spicier.
Now, add the fried florets to the sauces and saute for 2 minutes on high flame.
