Gobi manchurian banned from Goa street stalls, here’s why

The Mapusa Municipal Council (MMC) in Goa, last month, banned gobi manchurian stalls sells due to health related concerns.

Fans of desi cuisine have always adored gobi manchurian. Still, Mapusa in Goa announced a war’ on this cuisine. The Mapusa Municipal Council (MMC) outlawed gobi manchurian stalls last month in Shree Bodgeshwar Zatra.

The dish’s unhygienic cooking conditions, the use of artificial colouring, and even the usage of washing powder and dubious sauces led to the implementation of the ban.

The meal, which consists of deep-fried cauliflower florets served in a hot sauce, has generated controversy in Goa for the third year running.

The MMC’s chairperson Priya Mishal, said they have banned the sale of this dish because the councillors felt that these vendors operate in unhygienic conditions and use synthetic colours when making gobi manchurian.

A senior Food and Drug Administration (FDA) food safety officer said, some sellers might utilise sauces that are harmful for consumption even while they put better-quality ones on display. They use inferior sauces to make gobi manchurian, but they keep the premium sauce on display, he added. The officer also informed, they use some kind of powder in the flour and cornflour in the batter so that the cauliflower florets stay crispy for a long time after deep frying.

The officer said, he thinks that reetha, which is used to wash clothes, is also utilised by food vendors. He raised question and asked have you wondered why you pay Rs 70-100 for one plate in restaurants and Rs 30-40 in Zatras?

The MMC is stepping up its efforts to put a halt to the selling of gobi manchurian, but the street vendors have shown otherwise. They added that a few sellers gave them orders to cease providing this food, but they also questioned why the municipality singled them out.

However, this is not the first time when something like this has happened. Questions concerning Gobi Manchurian have been raised earlier also. At the Vasco Saptah celebration in 2022 at the Shree Damodar temple, the Mormugao Municipal Council was directed by the FDA to limit the quantity of stalls offering this food.
