roasted gobhi manchurian dry

Who does not like Gobhi Manchurian? This Indo-Chinese dish is the default starter dish most people order. Especially when visiting hotels/restaurants in groups, a few plates of gobhi manchurian dry is ordered for the entire table. A great starter/appetizer to share. I have made it healthier by making it roasted gobhi manchurian dry.
I have seared the cauliflower florets in pan with very little oil and finished roasting it in the oven till crisp. These cauliflower florets are then tossed with tasty onion-capscium masala. Yum! Roasted gobhi manchurian dry is great for sharing and is a sure crowd pleaser.

All the standard Indo-Chinese flavours are added, like soya sauce, chilli sauce. There are several steps to making roasted gobhi manchurian dry.
I have broken them into smaller steps so it will be easy to follow. However, some steps can be made slightly ahead of time if required. This will reduce the effort quite significantly.
More Indo-Chinese dishes like hot and sour soup, vegetable hakka noodles. Some Chinese recipes like sesame noodles, broccoli stir fry also on FOI.
