This is a dry version of gobi 65 and does not include sauces like soy sauce or tomato sauce. The recipe is a homely version and not a restaurant style version. I have also not deep fried the cauliflower florets, but shallow fried them in less oil.

Prepare gobi 65 as a starter dish or as an evening snack and serve with tomato ketchup or red chili sauce. You can also serve with coconut chutney or coriander-mint chutney.
