Gobi Manchurian -Gravy

This is my husbands favorite Indo-Chinese gravy dishes and it vanishes quickly when served hot with Kerala paratha :)

I first tasted this gravy dish when I went out with him for lunch in our early courtship days :)
When the time came to place an order, I suggested some common vegetarian dishes, as it happened to be the day when I am also a veggie :D and my hubby gave a me a look as if I had issued orders to kill him!!

So he suggested me this dish to try...and it rarely happens that he would suggest veggie dishes as he worships fish and chicken :P....anyways I did try....and it happened that it turned out really yummy one.
For a long time this had been on my list and finally got a chance to make it.

Try this out and enjoy the great taste!! :)
