Drain water and dry the florets completely. Remember that any moisture will affect the crispness of the florets.
In a large bowl, mix maida, corn flour, salt, pepper and a little water. Whisk to form a smooth batter.
In a kadhai, heat oil for deep frying. Coat the florets in the batter and deep fry them until crispy and brown. Set aside.
In a pan/ kadhai, heat oil and add chopped garlic, ginger and chillies.
Saute and then add spring onions, onions and capsicum. Stir-fry the ingredients together.
Add soy sauce, tomato ketchup, red chilli sauce, vinegar and sugar. Add salt and pepper as required.
Mix well and add water/ corn flour slurry to adjust the thickness of the gravy.
Finally, add the fried cauliflower florets and toss them well with the sauces.
