Gobi Manchurian - Dry Version

Gobi manchurian
Hope everyone is having a great weekend.This weekend I made so many dishes like Vegetable briyani,Coconut milk rice,Chilli paneer and the pioneer woman’s famous Cinnamon bread.Just now I made it and it came pretty good,it turned out so soft and tasty..will post all those recipe in the coming days.I also made gobi Manchurian,that is for today’s post..I have mentioned in one of my post that cauliflower is my favorite vegetable.I have already posted gobi 65  recipe.This is another one cauliflower dish that is a favorite of many(I KNOW .. I KNOW).Gobi machurian is a kind of Indochinese dish.It is lip smackingly good,this is one of those dish that you want to lick your fingers after eating it.I recommend you all to make the sauce first and then fry the cauliflower and also add the fried cauliflower in the sauce just before you serve,this makes the cauliflower stays a little bit crispy.So hope you all make this and let me know how it came..BYE...

Hi aarti,

I love ur blog, Your blog is my reference book for recipes.Yesterday I tried Gobi manchurian yesterday but the Gobis are not crisp.So the dish didnt turn out good.

Please help me how to prepare crisp gobis?????

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@uma nair Fry the gobi and add it to the sauce in the last minute, so they will stay nice and crispy.

Hi Arthi, love your blog! How exactly do you make the red chilli paste? or where do you get it from? You feature it in a lot of you recipes and I was just wondering!

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@Anonymous I make my own chilli paste. I will post the recipe soon

Anonymous said... Best Blogger Tips

I have tried many times to prepare this but i am failing in preparing batter.The cauliflowers are not properly mixup with batter.can you please suggest me the exact ratio of water and thickness of batter?

Aarthi said... Best Blogger Tips

@Anonymous The batter should not be too thick or too thin. The batter should be a little thin that dosa batter. if your batter is too thick then it will over coat the gobi,if you dunk them in sauce it will go soggy. If the batter is too thin, then there wont be any coating in the gobi. So make the batter inbetween that.
