First make the batter by mixing the corn flour, maida, red chilli powder, salt and water. Add water little by little to ensure the batter is neither too thick or thin.  The consistency should be like dosa batter.

In a kadai heat the oil for frying and once the oil is hot dip the cauliflower florets in the batter and fry them till they are golden brown in color. Take out the cauliflower florets and keep them aside.

In the same kadai after removing the excess oil add green chillies, onion and capsicum one after the other and saute for a few minutes. Now add ginger garlic paste and saute till the raw smell goes.
