2 cups cauliflower, cut into florets
Oil to deep fry
For the batter:
5 tbsp maida / plain flour
3 tbsp cornflour
1/2 tsp red chilli powder (optional, depending on heat level preferred)
1/4 tsp pepper powder
1 garlic clove, minced
A pinch of salt
About 1/4 cup water
For the sauce:
1 small onion, chopped fine
1/4 cup capsicum, chopped fine
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 green chillies, slit midways (use to taste)
2 tbsp tomato ketchup
1 tsp green chilli sauce (optional but recommended)
2 tsp soy sauce
2 tsp vinegar
2 tsp cornflour mixed with 4 tbsp water
Salt, check before adding

1. Let's start with the sauce. Heat oil and fry the onions, capsicum, green chillies, if using, and garlic until the onions turn golden brown.
2. Add the ketchup and the green chilli sauce to the onions and mix well. Fry for 30 seconds.
3. Turn the heat to high and add the soy sauce and vinegar. Mix well for 5 seconds and lower heat back down. Fry for 30 more seconds.
4. Now add the cornflour-water mixture and mix until the sauce thickens. Check salt and add more only if necessary, since the soy sauce and chilly sauce may have salt. Set sauce aside.
5. Mix ingredients for the batter until you get a slightly loose batter of pouring consistency. Heat oil until its just short of smoking hot, coat each cauliflower with the batter and drop it into the hot oil. Fry until golden brown and drain on kitchen towels. Repeat.
6. Once all the cauliflower florets have been fried, add to the sauce and mix well. Serve hot garnished with coriander leaves or green onions.
