Gobi 65

Gobi was my Indian neighbour boy and he, such a darling. Gobi and I were best friends because we were at the same ripe age (sweet sixteen) and we sure clicked like the mouse and laptop. But mummy dearest was worried. She thought I'm going to run away with Gobi. So she planned big time and the plan worked. In the end after all the Indian drama, Gobi eventually moved out and I never saw him ever after though I can still until today recall his innocent crispy smile. More so, on this day when I bought the fresh as ever cauliflower (aloo gobicauli butter stir friedcauli coriander currycauli fritters, cauli pakorascauli cutlets or cauli curry). Gobi was on my mind. Back home, the crispy fried Gobi I made lovingly for my loving half-half.

1/4 cauliflower - cut into florets

For batter
2 tbsp corn flour
2 tbsp yoghurt
A pinch of baking soda
1 tsp chilli flakes (optional)
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp cumin seeds
1/2 tsp ginger paste
1/2 tsp garlic paste
3 sprigs curry leaves - sliced thinly/shredded
Salt for taste
Oil for frying

Steam or parboil cauli till soft and tender.
Keep aside.
Mix together all the other ingredients (except oil), pour water bit by bit and whisk/stir for a right consistency batter.
Dip cauli inside and deep fry.
