    • Hi Dilja,
      Thank you very much dear :) Nice to know that you’ve tried many recipes from this site. Sorry for the delayed reply to your query… I’m away on holiday now, hence the delay. Hope you understand.
      About the difference between chilli gobi and chilli manchurian… the set of ingredients used in the recipe is different. In chilli gobi, we have used red chilli to spice it up and in machurian black pepper is the main spice agent. Apart from that there are minor differences.

  5. Hi,

    Recently started cooking … was searching for some quick, easy recipe and came across ur blog … good work :)
    could u plz tell me wats vegetable stock …

    • Hi Archana,

      Thank you :)

      To make vegetable stock, cook some veggies like carrot, celery, cabbage etc, along with garlic, peppercorns, bay leaf & salt in enough water. Cook till the veggies become mushy. Discard all the veggies and take the remaining water, thats the stock.

      The above is a bit time consuming process. For a quicker version, you can use any stock cube like maggie chicken or veggie cube. However the stock is healthier.

      Please check out the below link to get a detailed idea about it:

      Hope this helps…
