Fried Gobi Rice

Today recipe is a stir fried rice recipe which I have noted it from a cookery show long back. I usually make this kind of deep fried vegetables as a side dish to bisibelebath, curd rice or with some pulao. I usually note down the  recipes from cookery shows when they sounds different. When I saw this recipe found it interesting. Usually we make fried rice with Manchurian or gobi 65 as a side dish. When you mix both the dishes the marination of the fried cauliflower gives a great aroma to the rice.You can serve it just like that with out any side dish or with any manchurian or simple chilli garlic sauce that's your choice.
Let's check the recipe......

Cauliflower --- 1 clean and cut in to small florets
Curd (yogurt) --- 1/2 cup or 2 tab sp s
Red chili powder --- 1 tea sp
Ginger garlic paste --- 1 tea sp
Garam masala --- 1/2 tea sp
Corn flour --- 2 tab sp
Rice flour -- 1 tab sp
salt to taste
Oil for deep frying
METHOD:----
1. Place cauliflower florets in a bowl and add hot water and a very little salt and cover and leave a side for 10- 15 min.
2. After 15 min. drain the water and place cauliflower on a kitchen towel to remove all moisture
3. Mix all other ingredients in a mixing bowl and add cauliflower and marinate the flower well and leave for 1 hour to marinate. You can do this marination for over night if you are leaving cauliflower in the marination for over night then keep it in the fridge.
Take it out from the fridge 10 minutes before you deep fry it.
4. Heat oil in a deep frying pan and deep fry the marinated cauliflower in the hot oil in a medium flame till golden color.
if any left over marination in the bowl keep it a side we can use it while making the rice
Now let's start making rice with fried cauliflower:

Plain rice  ---  2 cups
Chopped garlic  ----  1 tab sp
Chopped green onion ---  1/4 cup
Leftover marination from the fried  cauliflower

2. Then add the marination from the fried cauliflower marination give a good stir then add rice and salt to taste mix well and stir fry the rice for few minutes.

Adding marinated cauliflower to fried is new. I know some people deep fry veggies ( beans carrots & peas) before adding to fried rice. This version is interesting & the marinade must have given additional flavor to the rice.
