Things To Note

Batter Consistency

While making the batter to fry the Gobi Manchurian, make sure the batter is neither to thick or too thin. The blanched cauliflower has to be coated well so that the masala is absorbed well. 

Reserve 1-2 Tbsp of Marination 

Reserve 1-2 Tbsp of the marination to add it while making the sauce. This gives thickness to the sauce. If you do not have any marination leftover, add 1 Tbsp cornflour to water and make a fine water. Add it while making the sauce.
