  • In a large bowl, combine the chapati atta, rice flour, 1/2 a cup of cornflour, baking powder, salt, soya sauce, 1 tablespoon garlic/ginger paste, 1 tsp chilli powder, turmeric powder and 1 tablespoon of green chilli paste.
  • Mix well with water, till you get the consistency of a thin batter.
  • Dip the cauliflower flowerets in this batter and deep fry in oil, drain and set aside.
  • In an open pan, add some oil and when it smokes, add the remaining garlic and ginger paste.
  • The minute it starts turning brown, add the chopped onions and fry only till they start becoming translucent.
  • Now add the chopped garlic, green chilli paste and fry for a minute.
  • Add the soy sauce and stir for a minute.
  • Bring down the heat, then add the cornflour-water paste and the saffron.
  • The mixture will start to thicken.
  • Keep on stirring on low heat and when the mixture turns thick enough.
  • Add the chopped coriander leaves and stir for 20 seconds.
  • The leaves should not lose their colour.
  • Take this mixture from the heat and pour it onto the fried cauliflower.
  • If you desire, you can add the cauliflower when the mixture is in the pan itself in the last stage.
