Gobi Manchurian

Gobi Manchurian:While making this dish it took me back to the memories with my friends in Barcelona ..Back in 2004,when I was attending visa interview at Spanish Embassy in Delhi ,I met a group of 5 guys of my age who were also attending the interview for same reason of pursuing higher studies in Spain.We all stayed in same apartment in Delhi for few days and I made Gopi Manchurian and fried rice for them for a meal..I remember how everyone enjoyed it and among them Deepu Menon who told me how happy he would be if I get the visa..Later,we 6 got visa and they became not just friends but as my family abroad..we stayed in same apartment until I left them for England in 2013…Last week I shared this memory to our guests while we were having dinner and the guest Fr.Tomy reminded me of the old saying’ way to a man’s heart is through his stomach’ and it is true.
