In all these recepies only maida is used along with corn flour ,never wheat flour .



Too gooood. Both me n my husband enjoyed it.. Thanks.


U can add 2 tbsp besan powder with maida and last stage u can add 1 tbsp tomato ketcup for more taste and can substitute with redchilli sauce with chilli flakes.Finally add Chopped Fresh Coriander, it looks nice. Thank you


I was reading the comments section , and all the questions asked I have made Gobi Manchurian many times ..so coming back to the question as to whether it's Maida or wheat ka atta (wheat flour) its always Maida , when they say just Flour,other wise its always mentioned. but try adding some besan ka atta and a little bit of rice ka atta (flour) its comes out nice a crispy along with the maida off course
