Preparation and Cooking Method

  1. Cut vegetables as directed. Combine all the ingredients in a mixing bowl, except oil. For balls, use ingredients listed before "oil for deep frying." (All other ingredients shown below in the ingredients list are for making the gravy.) Mix well to form medium-firm dough. Don't press too hard. If the dough becomes loose, add some more all purpose flour/maida and adjust the consistency. Prepare small, lemon-size balls.
  2. Heat oil in a kadai/pan for deep frying. When the oil becomes hot, drop the balls into the oil. Don't overcrowd them. Fry until the balls turn golden brown and crispy. It may take 5-6 minutes, on medium-low heat. Remove them and place on an absorbent paper sheet. Repeat the process for all of the dough.

Gravy Preparation

Place corn flour (for gravy) in a small bowl. Add some water and mix well. Let it be thin and flowing.

Now, let us prepare the manchurian gravy.

Heat 1 tbsp oil in a kadai/deep pan. Throw onion, chopped green chilli, garlic, and ginger into it. Saute until onion becomes transparent. Add soya sauce. Let the content boil for 1/2 minute.

Now, drop the fried balls. Pour the corn flour liquid to the kadai. Add vinegar or lemon juice (optional) and salt. Be careful adding salt because soya sauce and manchurian balls already have salt in them. Let the heat be very low and mix thoroughly. See that the manchurian balls are evenly coated with the gravy. Add some chopped coriander. Take off the stove, and mix once.

Transfer the veg. manchurian to a serving bowl. Garnish with chopped coriander/cilantro.

Enjoy eating hot manchurian with tomato sauce.

Extremely healthy and nutrient rich, due to multiple veggies used. Also note that MSG (taste maker) is not used.

    Eggs are not used in this recipe. The balls contain corn flour and plain flour in it. Hence, fry the balls straight away in hot oil.

    this recipe looks very easy to follow and I will definitely try this out for sure.

    Do you need to dip the balls into beaten eggs or just coat with plain flour before deep frying?
