Vegetable Manchurian (Gravy)

There are two versions of this Chinese dish , gravy and dry. Vegetable Manchurian (gravy) is a great side dish which goes well with Chinese main course, be it rice or noodles.  I love Vegetable Manchurian with Fried Rice.

  1. Take a bowl, add all the ingredients under Manchurian balls. Mash them thoroughly and make lemon sized balls. I made 11 balls.
  2. Heat oil in a wok. Deep fry the balls until golden brown in color.
  3. Now, for gravy, Heat oil in a pan and add garlic. Saute till light brown and add ginger and green chilli.
  4. Add onion white. Sauté till transparent. Add soya sauce, chilli sauce, pepper powder, salt and sauté for few seconds.
  5. Add vegetable stock and bring it to a boil. Add diluted corn flour slowly stirring continuously on low flame. Bring it to boil. The gravy will thicken.
  6. Once it thickens the gravy is ready. Add Manchurian balls just before serving and garnish with spring onion green.

Serve hot with fried rice or noodles!!

Hope you liked it!!

Enjoy Cooking!!!!
