This is the way I follow to avoid the "Deep fried sin". The oven is truly a gift for weight watchers.Cauliflower manchurian is generally deep fried. After I had started my weight reduction program around 4 years back I have been trying all the ways to avoid deep fried foods and it has worked out well for me. This cauliflower manchurian is as yummy as the fried one and truly "guilt free".
