Vegetable Manchuria (Chinese Style)

I love chinese food very much. Yesterday i prepared vegetable manchuria. This is my hubbys favourite. Here is my recipe :

Ingredients (For Manchuria Balls):

1 cup finely chopped carrots (I used mini chopper to cut all the vegetables)
1/2 cup finely chopped beans
1/2 cup finely chopped coriander leaves
1/2 cup finely chopped onions (optional)
1/2 cup finely chopped cabbage
4 tbsp maida or all purpose flour
4 tbsp cornflour
2 Eggs
1 tsp ginger garlic paste
salt as per taste
1 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp red chilli powder
1/2 tsp Ajinamoto (Chinese salt)

For Tadka/Talimpu/Popu :

1 tbsp oil
3 tbsp finely chopped garlic
2 tbsp finely chopped green chillies
2 tbsp finely chopped curry leaves
2 tsp dark soya sauce (optional)
2 tsp tomato sauce
finely chopped coriander leaves for garnishing

Method :

1. Mix all above ingredients (Manchurian balls ingredients) in a bowl into a tight content, make small size balls, deep fry in oil till light brown color on medium flame.

2. Heat oil in a kadai, add chopped garlic, chopped green chillies and chopped curry leaves, saute for few seconds, add soya sauce, tomato sauce and 1/4 cup water, mix well, bring to a boil.

3. Now add above fried manchurian balls, mix gently, fry for more 5-10 minutes on low flame. After veg. manchurian becomes desired hot, turn off the heat and garnish with finely chopped coriander leaves.

Note : 1. If you dont like eggs, you can replace with water to mix the contents tightly. But eggs will give more taste.
2. Along with above vegetables, you can add finely chopped capsicum and gobi also.

  1. hi jyothi this is one of the recipes that i prepare well... this is my alltime favorite...ur manchuria reminds me of my colleges days where my frens use to come to my home and we all prepare it together:-)
    anyhow a small suggestion when u prepare for the next time, at the time of garnish take a cup of water add 1/4 sp corn flour,lime juice and soy sauce to it.and pour on the manchurian balls..this gives little more tenderness..anywayz u r grt....innovative with ur chinese recipes..keep going buddy!!!!!!!
