Gobi Manchurian (Dry)

Yesterday, I invited some of my friend for dinner and you guess what I made for starter? It's my favourite Gobi Manchurian. We met after so many years and we all enjoyed a lot. While we were talking about some coupon sites and their deals, one of my friends said, she found Cuponation offers latest and most lucrative deals from leading brands and retailers. I checked the site and was really surprised to see the vast collection of active coupons. I liked their home and living coupons. Now, to the recipe...

Ingredients :

1. Cauliflower  - 1  Medium Sized (Cut into bite sized Florets)
2. Gram Flour (Besan) (or) All Purpose Flour - 1/2 Cup
