Grilled Gobi/Cauliflower Fry

Grilled Gobi/Cauliflower Fry

Grilled Gobi

I would like to have Gobi as the first starter when i stick to veg lunch at restaurants.Though they are good in taste, it comes in a high caloried food list. I planned to have a low caloried version with the same taste hence I used the oven to grill and named them as Grilled Gobi/Cauliflower Fry. I have a baked version of Gobi also and that will be updated little later.


Cauliflower - 1 (small sized)
Maida - 1/4 cup
Corn starch - 1 tbsp
Ginger garlic paste - 1 tsp
Red Chill powder - 1 tsp
Garam masala - 1/2 tsp
Salt - 3/4 tsp
Lemon - 1 big sized
Turmeric powder - a pinch
oil - 1 tbsp

Cooking steps

  1. Cut the cauliflower into 15 to 20 small sized florets.
  2. Add turmeric powder and 1/4 tsp of salt to the cauliflower.
  3. Add enough water and bring it to half boiled. 
  4. Drain water and keep aside
  5. Extract 1 tbsp of lemon juice from lemon and keep aside.
  6. Mix maida, corn starch, garam masala, red chilli powder and 1/2 tbsp of salt with lemon juice. Add little water and mix well till it forms a thick paste
  7. Coat the cauliflower well with this paste and keep aside.
  8. Preheat oven to 200 deg celsius in grill mode
  9. Spread a tbsp of oil in a baking sheet and place the cauliflower florets on the baking sheet.
  10. Place the baking sheet in the top rack of the over and set the timer to 15 minutes.
  11. Turn to the other side of the cauliflower in the mid of the timer set and make sure both the sides are well done.

A few suggestions

Make sure there is no raw smell coming out from the gobi even its grilled completely. If you feel so, just have a shallow fry the whole bunch of gobi florets in a hot pan by adding a tsp of oil.
