Gobi 65 Recipe - Cauliflower 65 | Easy Starter Recipes

Gobi 65 Recipe
Hubby loves gobi 65 and it is his constant order in restaurants for starters. Though I am not a starter person I have it once in a while. For low fat version of gobi 65 check the grilled gobi 65 post. I like gobi manchurian more than gobi 65 :)

Gobi 65 - Gobi 65 Recipe

My Notes:

  • You can also fry greenchillies with curry leaves and garnish it.
  • I add turmeric powder with cauliflower while boiling but its purely optional.
  • Make sure the batter is slightly pastey with running consistency else it will not stick to the cauliflower.
  • You can even fry cauliflower without paroiling but I prefer parboiling for the batter to coat well.
I am sure kids will love this as its crispy and yummy. Its a easy to cook starter especially for guests lunch or dinner. We make gobi manchurian more often than this.

  26. Nisha S : Gobi 65 is totally a dry version and gobi manchurian is mostly saucy but sometimes made in a semidry way too. Gobi 65 added to the sauce becomes gobi manchurian :)

  33. What is thick curd? Ricotta cheese?

    Also is soya sauce the same as soy sauce? The chinese/japanese salty brown stuff?

    ReplyDelete
  34. @Ali : It is just curd that is thick or you can hung the curd in a thin cloth for sometime to drain the excess water to get hung curd which can also be used.
