This is one of my FAV dishes... Been a long time eating this. Will make it this weekend.

Thanks for adding this, it looks crunchy.

BTW One could try Two varieties of the Gobi Manchurian - 1. Dry 2. Wet

For the Wet Manchurian After the Ginger garlic paste is fried i think some water could be added to let it boil a while. I think small pieces of cut garlic and ginger would add to the look and could be used instead of the paste. Cut green chilly pieces add to the Zing. Some more corn flour could be added for thickness of the gravy. When it boils start adding the coriander powder and other next steps are same i guess.

For the Dry Manchurian the Cauliflower could be fried little more towards darker brown just for variety. One must suit individual taste though.
