Cauliflower fry is a delicious fry made using cauliflower florets. Gobi fry here is a dry fry version of gobi suitable to be eaten with roti or paratha.
Gobi stir fry is a dry dish and gobi fry can be made in many ways and here I have shown the simplest way of stir frying made with few spices.
Some tend to deep fry the gobi and some stir fry it and both versions of gobi fry taste yum.
Using few spices makes stir fries very tasty and they appear to be simple. I usually prefer to add spices which are very basic and they bring out an amazing taste into the dish.
One must always consider cleaning of the cauliflower as an important point as it contains insects and worms. There are a few points to be noted while cleaning the gobi to make gobi fry.
The gobi should always be cut into florets and checked to see if there are any worms or insects attached to it. If there are any remove them with knife.
Take the florets and blanch them in water for few minutes and strain the florets to remove the water present in them. Make sure the florets are water free so that gobi can be fried properly.
In order to avoid all the cleaning procedure the gobi selection while buying should be done perfectly. We should buy a fresh gobi where all the florets are tight and not appear to be loose. If the florets are appearing to be loose then, it is not a fresh gobi.
