Its most famous contribution is the distinctive Indian-Chinese cuisine, which has a large and devoted following even outside India. What can sum up this gastronomic fusion better than Gobi Manchurian? As any aficionado would note, this spicy dish has nothing to do with the Gobi Desert. But it has a lot to do with cauliflower.
