6. Dip the cauliflower florets in the batter completely and deep fry them in the oil till they turn golden brown color or until crispy whichever happens first.

7. Drain the oil from the cauliflower florets with tissue paper.

8. Heat oil in a pan to make the sauce. Add sliced garlic and onion. Fry well till the onion turns golden brown color. Add capsicum(optional), spring onions(optional), red chilli powder, salt and mix well.

9. Turn the heat to high flame and add soya sauce. Stir well for a minute. Turn the heat to normal flame again.

10. Add tomato sauce and 50 ml water and allow to boil it for sauce consistency.  Add fried gobi and mix well so that the Gobi gets well blended with the sauce. You are done with the Gobi manchurian dry. If you want to make gravy, proceed to the next step.

11. Mix 1 tbsp cornflour with 200 ml of water well without lumps. Add this to the dry gobi manchurian and allow it to boil for sometime till you get the required consistency.
