Step 1: Initial preparationà Cut cauliflower into florets large enough to be pakoras and boil them in water. Keep the florets aside to cool. Make the batter with plain flour, i.e., maida and water, while you take care not to make it thick.
Step 2: Coating the Gobhi. Now, take the florets you had kept aside in a bowl, mix with cornflour, rice flour, sprinkle some salt, and put ½ tsp garlic paste, ½ tsp ginger paste, and lastly a pinch of red chili powder.
Step 3: Deep Fryà After coating the gobies with the flour and spices, dip them in the batter you had made. Get the pan ready for deep frying. When the oil heats up, put the gobies one by one on a medium flame only till the coating turns crisp.
Step 4: The Gravyà Add 1 tsp garlic paste, ginger paste, split green chilies when the oil heats up in a pan. Add 2 tbsp curd, Kashmiri red chili powder, red chili sauce, salt, curry leaves, and stir it up into a paste. Put a tbsp of water in the gravy, and finally, add the gobies to it. Mix them well, and make sure that you immediately serve them to keep the crunchiness intact.
