Chilli Gobi / Dry Chilli Cauliflower – Indo Chinese Recipes

I love cauliflower a lot..I often make gobi 65 or gobi manchurian at home..This is the cousin sister of gobi manchurian.LOL..because it slightly resembles manchurian but lot more spicier than that. This is perfect for appetizer with a cup of any cool drinks..
