Gobi 65 | Cauliflower 65 | Restaurant style Cauliflower recipe

Gobi 65 recipe
Gobi 65 recipe
My husband generally loves vegetables and to continue the vegetarian diet through the weekend I made this easy to do Gobi 65/ Cauliflower 65. Instead of a snack we had this with our lunch along with sambar, rice and poriyal. This is a really quick snack/ side to do effortlessly. Cauliflowers contain vitamin B1, B2, B3, B4, B6 & B9, Omega 3, Vitamin K & Vitamin C. 

To make Gobi 65 a spiced batter is made and partially cooked cauliflower florets are dipped in the batter and fried in oil to cook further. The remain crunchy and succulent for a long time and taste great as a snack along with some fried curry leaves and ketchup or as a side to rice.

Cooks Wisdom

Tip 1

Make sure that while frying the oil is in medium heat else the florets will turn brown fast and the inside will not be cooked. Take a minute to fry each set of florets so that the inside is well cooked

Tip 2

The batter should be like dosa batter consistency if it is too thin then the florets will not be well coated with batter.

Tip 3

Do not over cook the florets else it will be difficult for them to hold shape

Tip 4

I skipped using red food colour you can add if you want to.

Tip 5

Adding curd helps in better binding and enhances flavour to the gobi 65.
