Gobi Manchurian at Woodlands



  • Justin Fox Burks
Americans aren’t the only folks known for fusing foods from different cultures. Some Indian restaurants, including Woodlands Indian Cuisine on Hacks Cross, offer an Indo-Chinese menu melding — you guessed it — Indian and Chinese. Woodlands’ Gobi Manchurian combines cauliflower (arguably the star vegetable in Indian cooking) and a spicy-sweet soy-based sauce (the Chinese part) for delectable cauliflower fritters. Florets of cauliflower are virtually unrecognizable when deep-fried and covered in a bright-red sauce. In fact, when I first tried the Gobi Manchurian on Woodlands’ Saturday buffet, I was certain someone had slipped a meatball onto my plate. The savory fritters may be ordered wet (with extra sauce) or dry (no sauce).
