VEGETABLE MANCHURIAN GRAVY RECIPE

     Vegetable manchurian is one which i wanted to try after tasting in a restaurant but somehow i had a feeling that it is slightly tricky and complicated and when i tried this yesterday for lunch i felt that it is an easy one to make and they came out very perfect but somehow i couldn’t get the color of the machurian gravies served in restaurants. that may be because of addition of any food color or too much of soy sauce. But I can say that turned out very well and the taste was very nice when we had with Vegetable Fried Rice.

GREEN CHILLI 2 NO.(FINELY CHOPPED)
GINGER 1/2 TBLSP(GRATED)

  • Grate the carrots,and cauliflower.
  • Mix all the ingredients in the above table except oil in a wide bowl.

  • Heat oil in a kadai and make small balls out of the vegetable mixture and deep fry the balls.
  • Do not add too much at a time.
  • The water oozes out from the veggie is enough to bind and make a ball.
  • If it is too dry then sprinkle  -2 tsp of water.

  • When it becomes golden brown take out from oil and drain in a kitchen towel. Always fry the balls in a medium flame. If the flame is too high, then the vegetables will not get cooked inside..
  • If it is too low, then will absorb oil.

  • Now add the capsicum and saute for a few minutes . Ensure that it should not be overcooked.
  • Now mix the water with all purpose flour and pour it in the sauce pan.
  • check for salt and boil in a low flame till the sauce slightly thickens.Add Soya sauce to this now.
  • Add tomato ketchup (if adding)at this stage and mix well.

  • actually i didn’t add the tomato ketchup while making the sauce. But when i was about to click the pictures i somehow felt that the colour is too pale and added again. But i can say , both the versions turned out yummy.
  • Add the balls before serving.
  • I have heard that these balls will break if they stay longer in the gravy, and i wanted to try out.
  • I took out a portion of gravy and dunked 3 balls in the gravy and this lasted for more than 8 hours without any breaks.

  3. You are right jetashri, in restaurants people do use a lot of color and dark soya sauce for manchurian dishes. The dish looks yummy and perfect.
