My name is Lakshmi, and I am a homemaker. I love cooking and experimenting with different recipes, especially those from my native India.
Gobi Manchurian is an amazing Indo-Chinese appetizer. Blending both Indian and Chinese flavors, the dish features crispy fried cauliflower florets that are tossed in a spicy, sweet, and tangy Manchurian sauce. This dish is a favorite with kids and adults alike.
