Gobi Manchurian Dry Recipe / How to Make Restaurant Style Gobi Manchurian Dry

Gobi Manchurian is my all time favourite. I make them quite often and each time they turn out great. I have already shared a version of gobi manchurian dry in this blog, but i am posting this recipe as a updated version of it.

This can be made in few minutes and goes well with any indo chinese meal like fried rice or noodles..

Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..

    My son liked it very much...
    Thank u for posting this..

    ur blog becomes my fav blog..

  11. 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?????

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

  13. 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!

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

  15. 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?

  16. @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.

  17. Can u pls specify quantity of flour nd cornflour in grams pls dear??

  18. Your pic has got green chilies but you haven't mentioned when to add it and your ingredients list too doesn't show green chili.. Irrelevant

  19. Thanks a lot dear....hd prepared it my son nd hubby jus luvd it......

  24. @Aparna RajendranMaking red chilli paste is so easy. Take some dry red chillies, soak them in hot water for 15 mins. Drain them and add to blender, blend with some vinegar. Store this in fridge for a month and in freezer for more than a year
