    it was very good. i usually do not like manchurian dishes, but my husband does. and i am glad he liked it and i also enjoyed it. To make a little more gravy, i added 1tsp of cornflour to one glass of water to the sauces before adding the fried cauliflower pcs and let it cook for 2 mts and then added the cauliflower and cooked it again for 2 mts more.
