Veg Manchurian

My very good friend Rajneet is excited about my blog and keeps sending me new recipes as and when she cooks it. It is nice as she is a vegetarian and a Punjabi and the dishes she makes are very different from the dishes that come out of my kitchen. They add to the range in this blog. 

Here is her awesome Vegetable Manchurian recipe.

1. Finely chop 2 medium sized onion, 1/4 cup beans, 1/4 cup cabbage, 1/4 cup capsicum and grate 1 carrot. Squeeze out extra water out of these veg. You can do it directly with your hands or using a muslin cloth.
2. In a bowl, take 5 tsp all purpose flour (maida), 2 tsp corn starch, 1tsp soya sauce , salt and above vegetables and mix them properly. If required you can sprinkle few drops of water and make small sized balls out of that mixture.
3. Deep fry them on a medium flame . Drain the oil and keep aside
4. In a separate pan, take 2 tsp oil and add 1 tsp each of chopped garlic, ginger and 1 onions and sauté them till they turn light brown.

5. Add 1 tsp each of soya sauce, vinegar, red chilli sauce and a pinch of salt and sauté for few seconds.( while adding salt remember all the sauces already contain some amount of it)

6. Add some water and let it boil.
7.  Now add 1 tbsp dissolved corn starch ( in a bowl mix 1 tsp corn starch in little water) drop by drop and mix it till the required consistency.
8. Add Manchurian balls to this gravy and cover and cook for 2 mins.
9. Serve it hot with fried rice.
10. If you want to cook dry Manchurian, add fried Manchurian balls after step 5 and cover and cook for 2 mins.
