Chinese Chilly gobi and potato chilly(Famous Indian Street food)

Chinese cuisines are remarkable. It has marked its place more as a street food not only in India but across the globe. The taste ,simplicity and ease with which it can be prepared is what i guess has made it popular and widespread as well. Am in Germany and whenever i enter a famous mall at my place i see like most of the people with packets of noodles strolling all the way. This is just a snapshot of the popularity of Chinese cuisine.

On the streets of India it is not only noodles that are popular but Manchurian and Chilly items are popular as well. The famous among all is the Hakka noodles. The Indian street vendors often customize the recipe to suit Indian pallets . I am a big fan of all the Chinese cuisine. Every now and then  i love having them. Last evening i prepared some Crispy Potato and cauliflower chilly item. I was in total love with this crispy fritters. This recipe has been adapted from the famous Indian chef Harpal Singh Sokhi's show at Sanjeev kapoors Khana khazana.

I hope you like them too .

  1. I too love Chinese food. Over here, you name it, we get it. Plenty of varieties to choose from. Lovely crispy fried gobi, crispy outer and soft gooey bite from the caulis. This is like a perfect finger food and I can imagine the taste, right after the frying process.

  2. I dont like Chinese food, its too bland for my taste plus most of it is non-veg. But Indo- Chinese is a hot fav and I love Sweet chili sauce. looking forward to try this very soon Sushma..
