Today I am sharing the recipe of Gobi Manchurian which is an Indo-Chinese dish. Indo-Chinese recipes are very popular among Indians. Even I am a huge fan of that. When I was working in bangalore, I was a regular visitor of Chungs chinese restaurant at Jayanagar.Couple of days back, I was having a chat with one of my friend who was there with me in Bangalore. She told me that she went to this restaurant recently and that's it, after our conversation I called my hubby and told him to buy a cauliflower while coming back from office. I made this on that same day.
