Gobi Chilli






Gobi chilli also known as cauliflower chilli is the Indo-Chinese starter dish which is commonly listed in menu of every restaurants in India. This dish is also one of the famous street food in cities like Bangalore, Mumbai, Mangalore etc. The preparation method is more similar to gobi Manchurian but taste wise it differs. It gives more of spicy and pungent taste. You can serve gobi chilly as a starter to your meal but I like to have this with fried rice as a side dish.
