Gobi 65 Chilli Gobi Recipe

We all love Indo-Chinese recipes and Gobi 65 or Chilli Gobi is no exception I guess unless you don't like cauliflower.  It makes a perfect snack or side dish with fried rice, noodles etc, I rarely make this and whenever I do, I never get a chance to click, it happens with most of my Indo-Chinese Recipes, we attack the food immediately that there's no time to take pictures and I end up with only step wise photos. I have few recipes like this in my draft God knows when the day will come I can use those step wise pictures!

Like most of the recipe Gobi 65 also come with few variations specially the South Indian way of making is little different from North India way.  This recipe is more towards the North Indian way of Gobi 65, to be more precise Khadakpur street style Indo-Chinese food.  Crunchy yet soft these Chilli Gobi makes a great party snack and I am posting this during Holi time so you can make this for your get-together.
