Gobi Manchurian the most loved Indo chinese dish in India and my hubby's all time favorite appetizer. He loves it so much that every time we go to India, this is his first MUST to have dish. Initially I use to think its tough to make it. But I was wrong if you have all the right ingredients handy, this dish is simple and easy to make. Every time I make it, I see a big smile on my hubby's face :) .
