 Uh…. Its been quite sometime I have been waiting to complete this post . As promised in my Diwali post, bringing you 2 guest posts from my 2 very good friends. I just love their variety n love the simplicity with which they make the food even more yummier.




 Cauliflower (Gobhi):1
  Plain Flour (Maida): 3/4th Cup
 Corn Flour: 1 tsp
Salt: to taste
 chopped green chillies: 2
sliced garlic: 2
 Ginger Garlic paste:1 tsp
Red chilly powder: 1 tsp
 Finely chopped Onions: 1 cup
 Ajinomoto: ¼ tsp
 vinegar: 1 tsp
 Soya Sauce: 2 tbsp
 Tomato Ketchup: 2-3 tbsp
Oil: to fry


  • Make a batter of maida, corn flour, red chilly powder and salt using water. Add ginger-garlic paste to the batter.
  • Dip the gobhi florets in the batter and deep fry till golden brown. Keep aside.
  • Heat oil in another pan and add garlic, chopped onions and green chilli to it.
  • Now, mix aginomoto, viniger, soya sauce and tomato sauce to it. Fry till oil seperates.
  • Add fried Gobi kept aside and mix well. Garnish it with spring onions or corriander leaves.


Vegetable Rice



Basmathi Rice: 2 Cups
Mixed Vegetables: 1.5 Cups
Ginger Garlic Paste: 1 Tblspn
Spring Onions: 2 stem
Soya Sauce: 2 Tsp
Vegetable Stock: 2 Nos
Salt:To Taste
OIl: 2 Tsp



  • Wash, drain the basmathi rice and keep it aside for atleast 30 minutes.
  • Chop vegetables of  your choice & keep it aside. I have used Carrots, Beans , Peas, Onions. Either microwave the vegetables or open cook them leaving the onions aside.
  • Chop spring onions finely & keep it aside.
  • In a large pan , add twice the amount of water for the rice measurement. Once the water boils , add the vegetable stock , a pinch of salt and rice. Cook in medium flame. Once the water is nearly about to evaporate , cover the rice pan with a lid and cook for 5- more min in fully low flame. Turn of the gas and allow it cool down a bit.


  • In 2 tsp of Olive Oil , Add Ginger garlic paste . Saute them for about 1 minute .
  • Add Red onions & spring onions and stir them for few minutes until they get translucent.
  • Now add the cooked vegetables and mix them well. Add Soya Sauce & required salt and stir them well. Turn of the gas and keep them aside.
  • Now add the rice to the vegetable mixture and stir well until they are well incorporated.
  • Serve hot with Gobi Manchurian or Raitha.
