I used the sauce in fried rice and pineapple fried rice too. I wanted to make schezwan paneer manchurian but finally ended up in making soya chunks manchurian with schezwan sauce. It paired up well with veg fried rice and we had a hearty Indo Chinese meal for lunch.

Notes:
  1. You can replace soya chunks with paneer.
  2. If the schezwan sauce is made ready before hand, this recipe can be done for lunch box too.
  3. You can add little rice flour to the marination. It will give crispiness to the manchurian. In that case make it dry manchurian and serve as a starter. Do not add water after adding sauce. Just add corn flour water only.
  4. This gravy is not too spicy, i added 2 tblsp of schezwan sauce.

  2. Very nice. I have tried murukku recipes from your blog. Even today I tried instant oats murukku recipe. It was really tasty and crispy. But in any of the recipes I was not able to make proper shapes. The dough breaks when I squeeze it from the achu. Any suggestions Jey??

    1. Hi,the reason of the murukku getting breaks is due to dryness.Make the dough soft and not too thick. Also ensure do not add too much butter, it will also make the murukku break in oil
