Street Style Gobi Manchurian Recipe – Dry Gobi Manchurian Street Style

Street style Gobi Manchurian

Street style Gobi manchurian recipe was in my try list for long time. In Bangalore, Raja Gobi is getting popular nowadays. Though I haven’t got a chance to taste it, I have seen its making in many Instagram videos. Nearby my house, there is a big market where you can find some carts in road side selling hot and colorful Gobi manchurian in the evening. You can see a crowd of people in the evenings surrounding the cart to enjoy this delicious Gobi manchurian.

I have always wondered what is the difference between street style Gobi manchurian and the ones served in hotels. Once I had a chance to watch the cart vendor making it. He fried Gobi pieces using a readymade Gobi 65 masala powder adding red food color to give the bright look. Once deep fried, it is removed and kept in a big colander. Whenever people asks for a plate of Gobi manchurian, he makes it hot by sauting onion, capsicum, green chilli, ginger, garlic adding soya sauce, chilli sauce, vinegar, ajino motto ( Chinese salt) and tomato ketchup in a very high flame, add little water to bring the saucy consistency and finally adds the deep fried cauliflower pieces. Tosses it quickly in high flame and transfer to a plate garnishing with spring onion or coriander leaves. He did not add corn flour slurry in the sauce mix. So it looks semi dry.  

I found the major difference between the restaurant style and street style Gobi manchurian is the texture. Restaurant style gobi manchurian looks saucy and creamy with a wet texture whereas the street style ones look somewhat dry with a coating of shiny sauce mixture.

Myself and Raksha loves the street style ones more than home style or restaurant style Gobi manchurian. So I tried it recently for Raksha’s birthday. I also referred few YouTube channels for the recipe. It came out so well. We loved it. Friends, do try this street style dry Gobi manchurian at home. You will also love it like us.

Green Chutney For Chaat Using Preethi Turbo Chop

Green chutney for chaats

Green chutney recipe can be prepared in many ways based on the requirement. Today I have shown how to make green chutney for chaats with simple ingredients. I prepared this chutney using Preethi turbo chop I received recently for a review. When I got a request to review this product, I accepted it happily as Preethi is one of my favorite brands for kitchen appliances. I have been using Preethi products for more than 10 years and it would be my first choice for mixer grinders.
Preethi turbo chop


Preethi Turbo Chop is a handy, electric vegetable chopper that perfectly chops the vegetables very finely in no time. It has a 450W powerful motor and sharp blade. So it takes less than a minute to chop onion, tomato and other veggies finely. It also helps to grind chutneys, dips, sauce and puree tomato, onion and coconut masala for gravies. Its an ideal gadget for Indian cooking. Basically Indian cooking needs lots of chopping works. This useful gadget makes our job much easier. Chopping gets done in one touch operation which saves lot of time. Working women, bachelors and people who wants to spend less time in chopping during busy morning hours would find this gadget very helpful. Price is also reasonable. As I already have Philips Chopper and blender, I could easily compare both the products. Preethi turbo chop is easy and fast to use than other brands.

It is a spicy snack made by mixing boiled potatoes with dabeli masala powder, and putting the mixture between pav (burger bun) greased with chutneys made from tamarind, dates, garlic, red chillies, etc. It is garnished with pomegranate and roasted peanuts ( Source: Wikipedia).

Vada Pav Recipe-Mumbai Batata Vada With Garlic Chutney Recipe

Vada Pav Recipe
Vada pav needs no introduction. As you all know, its a very famous street food which was born in Mumbai, Maharashtra. Here in Bangalore, I have tasted vada pav only in Goli outlets. Recently I went to Goli with my school moms friends just for a kitty party. There were nearly 7 varieties of vada pav. We ordered one each in all the varieties, we shared & relished it. Everything had its own taste & flavor.
I loved masala vada pav more than all.

In Goli, they use readymade frozen batata vada & the moment we order, they just deep fry the vadas in oil using an electronic fryer for 6 minutes at 180c and serve us really hot. The one I tasted in Goli tempted me to try at today.  As my daughter is a very big fan of pav recipes, she told me to make & keep it ready for her evening snacks after she is back from the school. 

For this recipe, I watched the making of vada pav in you tube videos & browsed through few websites too. Believe me, it came out awesome! I made Batata vada, Sukha (Lehsun)/dry garlic chutney, Green chutney and everything came out really well. I was very happy with the outcome. Now I can make yummy vada pav at home easily for my family & guests as well. But still I wish to taste the original Vada pav from Mumbai fast food corners at least once in my life time.
