Veg Crispy

I really miss veg crispy dish I used to hog on back in Mumbai. I finally manage to re-create close to restaurant taste and thought of sharing it with you all. Hope you like it.


For crispy veg:
Vegetables of your choice. I took following (1/2 cup each)
Baby corn:
Plain flour 1cup: Cornflour 1cup: Bengal gram flour/ besan: 1/2 cup (take more if quantity of vegetable is more)
Salt to taste
Soya sauce: 2 table spoon
Oil to fry

For gravy:
Spring onion: 2
Garlic: 4-6
Soya sauce: 1/2 cup
Tomato sauce: 1/2 cup
Sugar: 1 tbs
Salt to taste
Green chilies: 4-5 (take more if you want hot)
Black pepper powder: 1 table soon


For crispy veg:
Wash cabbage, capsicum, asparagus, broccoli, baby corn, cauliflower, mushrooms and peel onions. Cut them into 1-2cm large squares or pieces. Set aside to fry.

Mix plain flour, corn flour and bengal gram flour. Add salt to taste. 2 table spoon of soya sauce. Add water and make thick pourable consistency so that each vegetable get nice coating of this batter.

Take oil to fry in frying pan and heat it on medium flame. Heat until oil is hot. Add a drop of batter and see if it floats on the surface thats when the oil is ready to fry.

We will fry each type of vegetable separately as cooking time for each is different. Cauliflower, baby corn and broccoli has higher cooking time then cabbage, onion, capsicum and mushroom.

Dip each type of in the batter and fry them until they are golden brown. Take them out on absorbent tissue paper.

For gravy:
Wash spring onions nicely and fine chop them. Keep the leafy part on the side.
Peel garlic and fine chop it. Wash and remove stem of green chili. If you want to too hot cut them into small pieces else cut it into 2 cm large juliennes.

In a bowl mix soya sauce, tomato sauce, garlic, sugar and black pepper.

Tip: Before you proceed with following step check if your fried vegetables are crispy. If not place them in the pre-heated oven for 10 minutes on 180 degrees which will bring out crispiness again. Fried vegetables kept outside for long time looses its crispness.

Heat a large pan on high flame. Heat it until fumes start to come out. Add 2 large spoon full of oil. Add green chili and after 1/2 minute add spring onions and stir for a minute. Add fried vegetables and mix well. Now add the mixed sauce and let it cook for another minute or until the vegetables are nicely coated with the sauce.
Garnish with green leafy chops of spring onion. Serve hot. I bet you will enjoy it.
