Gobi Manchurian(Cauliflower Manchurian)

Gobi Manchurian

I am a great fan of Indo -Chinese cuisine. I have always loved all kinds of Manchurian dishes. Say it and i start craving for them. I love Chicken Manchurian, Vegetable Manchurian and Gobi Manchurian.  For the add on with this Manchurian i prepared some famous singapore recipe, Hainanese Rice.
This flavoured rice is a add-on for the saucy dish. 

In my college days i would always hop on to our college canteen to grab a plate of Manchurian. I was so crazy about this dish that i would never miss any opportunity to leave having a bite of it except for the one that was prepared in our Ladies Mess.
