Things you will need:

Garlic- 3 or 4 pods ; finely chopped
Ginger- 1 inch piece; finely grated
Onion- 1 medium size; diced
Green Onion - few; finely chopped
Soy Sauce- 2 tbsp
Tomato Ketchup - 2 tbsp
Chilli Garlic Paste- 1 tbsp
Oil -2 tbsp for frying and 2 tbsp for gravy

Preparation Method :

Using water mix all purpose flour, corn flour, pepper powder and salt into a fine paste.
Mix the florets in the paste and shallow fry till the florets turn golden brown on all sides.
Heat 2 tbsp oil in the same pan and add the ginger, garlic , onions and green chillies and stir till onion turns golden brown.
Now add soy sauce,chilli garlic paste and tomato ketchup.
