Gobi Manchurian or Cauliflower Manchurian is a very popular Indo-Chinese dish often served as a starter/appetizer. Suited for any occasion, gobi manuchurian comes in two forms – a dry version and a gravy version.

Gobi means cauliflower in Hindi. Chopped and fried cauliflower florets are dipped in a sweet, tangy and slightly spicy sauce and served.

Technically, this is not an authentic Chinese dish. It is more of a fusion food combining both Indian and Chinese cuisine.

health tip:i bake the florets instead of frying them..tastes just as good minus the extra calories

nice recipe. do we need to add soy sauce or is it optional?

Hi Pooja,

soy sauce will definitely add an important flavor to the recipe, so unless you have some allergic problems, I’d recommend that you add it.
