Cauliflower Fritters Indo-Chinese

Cauliflower Fritter Stir Fry- Indo-Chinese Recipe- Restaurant Style Cauliflower Stir Fry

Cauliflower fritter stir fry, a delicious Indo Chinese dish tastes exactly like restaurant-style…

When it comes to cauliflower I love it cooked Indo-Chinese way. Some of my favorite dishes are Gobi Manchurian, Chili Gobi, and cauliflower fritter stir fry. The sauces added while cooking this stir fry makes this dish delicious. In fact, for making most of the Asian dishes, I tend to add these sauces: soy sauce, dark soy sauce, hoisin sauce, oyster sauce & chili paste or sambal oelek. Dark soy sauce, when added, will impart the intense dark color. I would highly recommend you guys add all the sauces while making this dish, that’s when this stir fry will taste like restaurant-style.
