Gobi Manchurian is a popular Indo-Chinese dish in which cauliflower (“gobi”), is battered and fried, then tossed in a tangy, salty-sweet “Manchurian” sauce. Though delicious, typical gobi Manchurian can be heavy, goopy and often overseasoned. To lighten things up, in this version, we ditch the deep-fryer and instead oven-roast cauliflower that’s coated with seasoned cornstarch and oil. The results are crisp, beautifully coated florets without greasiness or the hassle and guilt that comes with battering and deep-frying. After cooking, the cauliflower is tossed in a sauce of ketchup, soy and vinegar. We also use a good dose of scallions, chilies and ginger to keep the flavors fresh and bright.
cup plus 1 teaspoon cornstarch, divided
teaspoons garam masala
