Hey.. on a side note, wasnt sure if you were vegetarian or not but Worcestershire Sauce usually has anchovies or some sort of fish ingredient that is not vegetarian..

Mythreyee said...

I used a sauce which was available in an indian store and which had a green label, i.e vegetarian and words in the label stating it is purely vegetarian. I hope it is vegetarian. thanks for your note. I will look about it next time I buy one.

I cooked this yesterday and posted it on my blog!! I'm such a huge indo-chinese food fan...but i use soy sauce instead of worcestershire...don't like the bbq taste of the latter:(

Me and my hubby love this a lot. I make this with a very slight variation. I fry finely cut onions into pinkish, add ginger-garlic paste, green chilies and finely cut capsicum(few-optional). Then add the sauces ( Tomato, soy, chilli) fry for a min and then add the fried florelets. Toss them for a while and garnish with spring onions and coriander leaves.

Dear Sudha, that is one delicious twist to the gobi manchurian. As I read your comment, I felt like the dish was sitting in front of me. So, next time I make these, I will display the dish like you described. Thank you.
