Gobi 65 is a perfect snack or can be served as a starter dish. This is available in almost all the restaurants in India. This is an absolute party dish which can be made easily within no time and which tastes yumm.

My daughter is a big cauliflower lover. Cauliflower in any form, she will finish it off as it is made.I make cauliflower dishes twice a week in the form of pakoda, kurma, gobi paratha, manchurian, side dish for rice and so on. After swimming class she would feel hungry and so once I made this gobi 65 which came out well and so from then on I make this quite often.

This is a very addictive snack because of its flavor and taste. This is a very easy and a simple snack which will be loved by all.
