Veg. Manchurian

The Indo Chinese cuisine is very popular all across India. Every Restaurant that serves rice most likely has the Manchurian and Fried Rice on its menu.Once that taste is acquired, it is hard to eat the Chinese food here.

While I have adapted this to my taste, the basic recipe is from a TV show. I believe it is Sanjeev Kapoor's Khana Khazana. I had the recipe written down on a paper but cannot track the source. It was those days when I had Zee TV and when I used to watch his show very religiously.:-)

Veg Manchurian

5 Carrots , peeled, grated
1 Cabbage, Shredded
3/4ths Cauliflower, grated
3 tbsps Maida, more or less depending on the consistency of the mixture
3 tsps Dark Soy Sauce
1" Ginger, chopped
2 cloves, Garlic, Chopped
1/2 Onion, chopped
5 green chillies, chopped
1 1/2 tbsp Tomato Ketchup
2 tsps corn starch
3 Spring Onions, chopped
1 tbsp White Vinegar
  • Mix Carrot, Cabbage, Cauliflower in a bowl
  • Add Salt, Maida and half of the green chillies
  • Shape into small balls about the size of a marble
  • Heat 2 tbsps of oil
  • Add onions, ginger, garlic and the remaining chillies and cook till fragrant
  • Add Ketchup, Soy Sauce, and Vinegar and cook for a few minutes
  • Add about half a cup of water about 4 oz
  • Add in the cornstarch and stir it continuously until the mixture is thick. Stirring continuously avoids any lumps' formation
  • Heat oil in a wok for deep frying
  • Add the balls one by one and fry till golden brown
  • Place the balls for a while on the paper tissue but not until they lose the crispy texture
  • Add the balls to the sauce and cook for a few min
  • Add the spring onions and mix
  • Serve with Veg Fried Rice
