Mix well again for 3-4 minutes for the flavours to get blended well with the gobis.

My Notes:

  • To make a dry version just reduce the tomato sauce so that the gobis are just coated with the sauce.
  • You can even deep fry the gobis for more crispy version. Also you can add 1/2 cubed capsicum after frying onions.
  • Adding cornflour water mixture is purely optional - this is just to make the sauce thick.Serve immediately before it becomes soggy.
  • Make sure not to saute the veggies for a long time in the sauce as the veggies need to be crisp.
  • Dont add more soya sauce than the mentioned amount else it will change the taste and make the manchurian more darker in color.
