Take a pan add oil, add chopped onion, chopped green chillies, chopped garlic, cook until onion gets transparent, add capsicum, saute for few mins,now add spring onions fry for few secs, add ginger-garlic paste, stir for few secs, add red chilli powder, black pepper powder, now add the cornflour paste,  keep it on medium flame, let it simmer until flour gets cooked, add soya sauce, tomato sauce, add coriander leaves saute for few mins.

Method for Gobi :
Clean the cauliflower, chop it to get medium sized florets, soak in salt water for about 5 minutes.
Boil water in a vessel add salt & turmeric powder to it, add cleaned cauliflower florets to it, switch off the flame, keep it closed for about 10 -1 5 minutes.

Take a mixing bowl, add Cornflour, maida, rice flour, salt, baking soda, 2 tsp red chilli powder, turmeric powder, Black pepper powder, one tsp oil, mix well adding water, the batter consistency must be like. it should get hold to the cauliflower florets, not too watery nor thick, while dipping florets you will come to know how the batter shld be, if it is watery you can add corn flour or vice versa.

Now take a kadai, add oil for frying.
Add one by one florets to the hot oil & take care they should not stick together,so to avoid getting them stick together, stir them in between.
after deep frying keep them aside.

Once you finished the frying of florets, add them to the gravy, mix well, fry the mixture for few mins, serve hot...

Its better you keep prepared the gravy first, so that you can add fried florets immediately after frying. so they will remain crispy.
