I know that this recipe is very common and also know that there is no one who did not eat or tasted this lovely chinese dish. The uncommon thing I want to tell about this gobi machurian is that here gobi floret are baked but not deep fried. I did this variation to make this dish more healthy, so that all can enjoy without any hesitation.
