Vegetable ball Manchurian
My DH got a readymade pack recipe mix of Chinese Manchurian. I've not tried it at home. Anyways with the ingredients available at home, i gave it a shot and it really tasted yummy. My DH approved the composition as "A1"...Happy!!! . My daughter gave a good feedback..stuffing her mouth with the veg balls and said "emmmmmmmmmmhhhhhhhh" with a protruding eyes...double happy!!!
My son, to the contrary, did not like it. Sad!!!
Here is the method i followed: (I didn't followed the receipe mentioned on the packet)
1. 2 tomatoes - chopped into very small pieces
2. 2 onion - chopped
3. 2 capsicums - chopped
4. Some grated cheese
5. Maida powder
Salt to taste
Method of preparation:
1. Chopped tomatoes, onion, capsicum are cooked in a microwave oven for 10 minutes on high. (Leave some portion of the chopped tomatoes, onions and capsicum to be used later..)
2. Mix the above with grated cheese and cook for some more 3-4 mintues
3. Also add salt to taste.
4. Allow it to cool down
5. Mix maida powder and little water (sprinkle) and mix it thoroghly so that one would be able to make solid balls.
Pour some vegetable oil into a heavy bottom kadai and allow it to heat. Then throw some vegetable balls into the oil and let it get brownish color outside. Turn the balls upside down so that it gets fried equally on all sides.
Fry the remaining chopped vegetables for 1 mintue.
Added 3 cups of water to the entire content of the recipe mix and stir and bring it to boil. Simmer for 2 minutes.
Added the fried manchurian balls and cook further for 1 mintue or till the sauce is thick. Garnish with coriander leaves (If you have ;-)..I didn't garnish as i didn't have in my refrigerator.
Emmmhhhh...You can relish this tasty sidedish with chappathi/fried rice.
