Since cauliflower -or gobhi as we call it in India- is quite a popular vegetable in our country and we take pride in creating a few beautiful recipes of it. We have loved, created and cherished these recipes for generations. Gobhi 65 is one of them.

Gobhi 65 is a spicy recipe which is originally from South India but equally popular in every part of the country. Cauliflower florets are parboiled and then a thin light coating of corn flour, all purpose flour and a few spices. Then it is deep fried.
