I had been thinking of making Chilli Gobi for quite some time. Recently I tried making the gravy after checking out some recipes from my mom's cookery books. I made small changes to the recipe to suit our taste. The gravy turned out delicious. The gravy can be served with fried rice, noodles or even with roti and naan.


1 cauliflower cut into florets
Oil for frying

For the marinade
4 to 5 tbsp maida
3 tbsp corn flour
½ tsp Garlic paste
½ tsp ginger paste
1 tsp soya sauce
2 tsp tomato sauce
1 tsp chilli sauce or red chilli powder
1 tsp pepper powder
1/3 tsp salt

For the gravy
2 tbsp oil
2 medium sized onions sliced
2 to 3 tbsp chopped spring onions
½ a capsicum sliced
8 big pods of garlic chopped finely
1” piece of ginger chopped finely
2 green chillies
1 ½ tbsp soya sauce
1 tbsp chilli sauce
2 tbsp tomato sauce
½ tsp vinegar
1 tsp pepper powder
1/3 tsp salt
½ tsp sugar
1 tbsp corn flour dissolved in ¼ cup of water


First heat water in a pan; when it starts boiling, add the cauliflower florets, switch off the gas and let it remain in hot water for 5 to 7 minutes. Then drain the water and take the florets in a bowl. Add all the ingredients of the marinade and mix well. It should completely cover the florets. If necessary add more all purpose flour, chilli or salt. Close a lid and set aside. You can allow it to marinate for 3 to 4 hours but this is optional. Then heat oil in a pan and deep fry the florets till golden brown in colour. Set aside. This is delicious and can be served as a starter too.

Now for preparing the gravy heat oil in a pan, add chopped garlic and ginger and sauté for some time. Then add chopped onions and spring onions, whole green chillies and capsicums and stir fry for 2 to 3 minutes. Then add all the 3 sauces along with vinegar, pepper powder, salt and sugar. Mix all the ingredients well. Bring to a boil. Now add corn flour dissolved in water and mix. Cook till boils appear. Finally add the florets, stir well and cook in low flame for about 5 minutes. Garnish with spring onion greens and serve hot.
