Hi friends, here is the simple side dish for your lunch cauliflower stir fry and its healthy stir fry. I used to make Chilli Gobi/Gobi 65 often, but want to reduce the deep-fried items in our diet, so I prepared the less-oil healthy stir fries. It’s crispy and crunchy gobi well suits with arisi paruppu satham, lemon rice, dal rice etc…

I am posting the healthy gobi stir fry for VT-Vegan Thursday which is the idea of +Priya Suresh akka. We group of members, posting vegan recipes on 1st and last Thursday of every month.
