Gobi 65 Recipe | Cauliflower 65 - Restaurant style

Today I am here with Gobi 65 recipe. Cauliflower florets are dipped in a spicy batter and are deep fried and served. This is an addictive snack, I must say. This is one of the easiest recipe and if you make this dish as an appetizer for the party, am sure it is going to be a hit. Not only that, this can also be served as a side dish to rice. My kids love cauliflower as such, but they love Gobi 65 even more.

  • I used one cauliflower. When cut into florets, I got about 4 cups.
  • Make sure all the excess water is completely drained, before adding to the prepared flour mixture. If needed, use towel, to wipe off excess moisture.
  • Adjust chilli powder, as per your heat tolerance level.
  • Adding food color is optional.
  • Temperature of oil is very essential for crispy Gobi 65. If the oil is too hot then the cauliflower will get browned fast but not completely cooked through. If the oil is not hot enough the cauliflower will be soggy.
  • While frying in batches, don't over crowd.
