Gobi Manchurian Dry recipe or the Cauliflower Manchurian dry recipe is another dish from the Indo – Chinese cuisine. Coated cauliflower pieces are deep fried and then cooked again with a mix of Indian and Chinese ingredients to produce one of the most popular veg Indo – Chinese dish.
One of the most popular veg dishes from the Indo – Chinese cuisine that you will find in every corner of India, the gobi manchurian dry recipe rules the roost. Crunchy outside and soft inside, this is just perfect for any occasion. Serve it as an appetizer or as a side dish with simple veg fried rice, there is no denying the fact that there is something exotic about the cauliflower which makes everyone line up for this awesome dish.
I have to be frank here and admit that the best gobi manchurian recipe that I ate was at a Chinese restuarant in Dubai. Spicy schezwan (Did I spell that right??) veg fried rice with the extra spicy gobi manchurian dry recipe was just what would be a proper bliss. We would request the chef to add more green chili and make it more spicy. But, of late, the taste has been missing. I have no clue if they have changed the chef or what. But the taste started differing greatly. We have altogether stopped eating there after trying it out a few times. I truly miss the yummy gobi manchurian dry recipe that I relished so much.
I never made this dish so much while it satisfied me in the restaurant. But ever since, I have been making it ever so often to satisfy my cravings and indulge myself once in a while. After removing some for my kids, I add some hot sauce and finely grated green chili at the end for the extra spiciness for us. It tastes simply awesome and out of the world.
