This is one of my favourite recipes ever. We go to a restaurant near our house ,where they serve this killer Chilli gobi's. It is very spicy but so yummy.I have been trying to replicate that recipe for a long time. After a few experimenting I have succeeded in that.Hope you all enjoy it like I do.

Garlic powder-1/2 tsp
ginger powder-1/2 tsp

In a pot of boiling water dip the whole cauliflower and let it sit for 5 minutes.Remove it and Drain it.Cut cauliflower into pieces.
Mix together Flour,Corn flour,Garlic powder,ginger powder,salt and water and make a batter .The batter should be of pancake consistency.
Dip the cauliflower florets in the batter and deep fry it until they are golden brown and crisp.Set aside.
Heat the wok , add the oil , garlic and onion. Saute until the raw smell of onion disappears. Now add the chopped zucchini,bell pepper and jalapenos. Saute 3-5 minutes in medium flame.

To give it a Restaurant style look, I put a bed of chopped Cabbage and also sprinkled the Chilli Gobi with White sesame seeds.
