It has been a while since I made Chinese food at home. Two days back, when I checked my fridge, I realised that I had all the ingredients to make some basic Chinese food. So, I made Cauliflower Manchurian and served it with Fried rice.
Cauliflower Manchurian really came out well. All of us at enjoyed it at home. It’s very easy to make and can be made in a jiffy. I am going to share my fool proof recipe with you and I hope you all would like it:)
