Easy And Crispy Restaurant Style Gobi Manchurian Recipe

Crispy Restaurant Style Gobi Manchurian

Manchurian is an appetizer or a starter mostly in menu these days and people love to order it too. It is an Indo Chinese dish that made my adding a north Indian touch in it. It is a fusion of flavors and spices.

Gobi Manchurian is a variation to it that is prepared with cauliflower (Gobi) instead of cabbage (Patta Gobi).

We make it by taking florets of cauliflower (Gobi) and make a coating of flour and spices and then tossed in sweet-spicy-savory sauce.

It is a veg., gluten-free, vegan dish, which is a tasty option to end your evening snack cravings with minimal cost and time.

It is a healthy option, that’s why it is best suited for kids also, as kids love variations in their food.
