Gobi Manchurian / Cauliflower Manchurian

Today I am going to share very interesting Vegetarian Starters Gobi Manchurian. Whenever I tell my hubby that am going to cook cauliflower curry, he used to tell lot of silly reasons to avoid cauliflower curry. In Initial days i believed all those reasons and I cooked some other curry at that time. Later I ended throwing cauliflower in the waste bin. Finally I come to know that he didn't like cauliflower. After searching several cauliflower recipes my search ended below :)
