Posted by S Manju on

Indo-Chinese fusion snacks have become popular street food in India. Gobi Manchurian is one among them. It is a food item made of fried cauliflower. Needless to mention it is a favourite spicy starter ordered by any of us while hogging outside. But have you ever thought how many calories your body gains out of it? Below given is an estimated calculation we got from few samples purchased from a local street vendor in Bangalore.

Above mentioned are total calorie count which gives us a vague idea that how dreadful can a Gobi Manchurian be for your health. To add on, Monosodium glutamate (a food additive) is commonly used to enhance the flavor of food items like Gobi Manchurian. This added chemical leads to severe headache, stomach upset, giddiness, sweating etc. Besides, it is a known fact that oil gets reused most often while preparing such snacks. The reused oil can cause acidity, heart disease, irritable throat and bad cholesterol levels. To make an important note, this snack hardly adds any proteins to your diet. Doesn’t this analysis make you think that consuming a plate of sizzling Gobi Manchurian is not really good for health?
