In 1965, A. M. Buhari, the owner of Chennai’s famous Buhari Hotel chain introduced a starter called Chicken 65, which became so popular that vegetarian variants like Paneer 65 and Gobi 65 soon emerged!
Today, the vegetarian versions are so popular that they are served in most popular restaurants as a starter apart from being sold by roadside vendors and bakeries!
It is also made in homes as an accompaniment for evening tea. Gobi 65 is a scrumptious veg version made by deep-frying cauliflower florets coated with a tongue-tickling batter of flours and masalas. Strong notes of ginger and garlic make this an appetizer in the true sense of the word!
