Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+

+Gobi 65Cauliflower is available all year around in the place we place. I love to make snacks like Cauliflower manchurian. Today I have something different to share using Cauliflower. It is Cauliflower 65 which makes a wonderful snack along with your evening tea or when you have some company.



Serves: 2 to 3 adults
Preparation time:  10 mins
Cooking time: 20 mins

  • Medium Cauliflower (florets, blanched) – 1/2 no
  • All Purpose Flour – 1/3 Cup
  • Corn Flour – 1/2 Cup
  • Curry Leaves – 1 sprig
  • Black pepper powder – 1/2 tsp
  • Kashmiri Chilli Powder – 1 1/2 tsp or to taste
  • Salt – to taste
  • Cumin Powder – 1/2 tsp
  • Coriander Powder – 3/4 tsp
  • Green Chillies (slit) – 5 or to taste
  • Ginger and Garlic Paste – 1/2 Tbsp
  • Water – 1/4 Cup or as required to make a stiff batter
  • Oil – for deep frying


For making Batter:

  • In a mixing bowl add all purpose flour, corn flour, salt, pepper powder, cumin powder, coriander powder, ginger and garlic paste, red chilli powder.
  • Mix well and add water to the dry ingredients to make a stiff and smooth batter without lumps.

For Frying:

  • Add cauliflower florets and mix gently with the batter.
  • Heat the oil for deep frying.
  • Deep fry the cauliflower florets in medium hot oil till they become crispy (approx 7 mins)
  • Fry the cauliflower florets in batches taking care not to crowd the pan.
  • Finish frying all the batter coated cauliflower. Set them aside.
  • In the same oil fry green chillies, curry leaves and add them immediately to the fried florets.
  • Squeeze some lemon juice on top for extra freshness.
  • Serve hot with chutney or sauce of your choice.


  • For blanching the cauliflower simply drop the cauliflower florets into the hot boiling water and let them sit in the water for 10 mins or until they are just tender
  • Rest the batter mixed with florets to get marinated which results in  flavorful Gobi 65. If running out of time, simply fry immediately.
  • For crispy Gobi 65 one should make sure the batter is thick enough to coat the cauliflower florets.
  • While frying the florets take time and fry them on medium heat for 7 mins atleast or until crispy enough.
  • One can use any other vegetable like Potato, soya chunks, paneer, mixed vegetables instead of cauliflower and make different variations.

    I am trying to follow your recipe for gobi 65 and got all the ingredients but confused as to you actually used corn flour or starch. The video makes it look like corn starch but the recipe says flour. I got corn flour from indian grocery store that seems course for this recipe. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks vib

      Corn starch and corn flour are same. If the package says corn flour and is in white in color, go ahead and use in this recipe, you will love it :)
