Vegetable Manchurian with Fried Rice is one congenial Indo-Chinese comfort food when I say Indo-Chinese it refers to an Indian version of Chinese dishes which are revamped over the years to suit the Indian palate. Manchurian which has always topped the menu cards of Indian Chinese serving restaurants got its name from Manchuria, which is actually a historical name for Northeast China. Light, spongy golf ball sized deep-fried vegetable dumplings plunged in piquant peppery sauce relished with stir-fried rice. This divine combination is always been in-house favorite Friday night meal and despite being relishing it almost every month we are still not humdrum by the dish.

In the last few decades, this Indo-Chinese food fare has become so popular among the food lovers, especially in the Northern region of the country, reason being its simplicity, bursting flavors and hint of spicy savour, making it quintessential dish for hot and sour flavors quenching taste buds. February month theme of #thekitchendivas (an endeavor to create a collection of recipes of Traditional Indian Cuisines in collaboration with a few bloggers who share the same passion of cooking) recipes revolves around Indo – Chinese Cuisine, so there will be an array of interesting popular recipes from the cuisine during the entire month. With Khara Bhath and other traditional Karnataka recipes, the theme of January came to an end leaving behind near about twenty conventional recipes from the state cuisine along with wide appreciation from the readers.

Ingredients
  1. For the Manchurian balls
  2. 1 small size cabbage
  3. 2 medium size carrot
  4. ¼ Cup finely chopped spring onion greens
  5. 2 tbsp bread crumbs
  6. 1 tsp freshly crushed black pepper
  7. 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  8. 2 tbsp cornflour
  9. Salt, as per taste
  10. Oil for deep frying
For the Manchurian sauce
  1. 1 large onion, finely chopped
  2. 3 – 4 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  3. 1-inch piece of ginger, finely chopped
  4. 2 red chilies, fine chopped
  5. 1 medium size capsicum, cut into small cubes
  6. 1 tbsp corn flour dissolved in 2 tbsp water
  7. 1 tbsp soya sauce
  8. 1 tbsp tomato sauce
  9. 1 tbsp white vinegar
  10. 2 water or vegetable stock
  11. 1 tbsp green chili sauce
  12. 1 tsp freshly crushed black pepper
  13. Salt, as per taste
  14. Oil for cooking
Instructions
  1. To prepare the Manchurian balls, first wash cabbage, carrot and spring onion in water. Pat dry with kitchen towel.
  2. Now grate carrots and transfer to a bowl. I used Food Processor to do the job of chopping cabbage or mincing it, cabbage can be grated also.
  3. Mix all the ingredients except oil in a large bowl. Combine with your fingers to get soft pliable dough like mixture. Keep aside for 10 minutes.
  4. Pinch small portion out of the mixture and shape into small round balls. Once all the balls are ready keep them in the fridge for sometimes till oil is heated. Keeping manchurian balls in fridge for 10 – 5 minutes make them firm and there is less chance of balls falling part while deep frying.
  5. Meanwhile heat oil in a deep frying pan over medium heat to fry the manchurian balls.
  6. Deep fry balls on boil over medium heat in small batches, do not overcrowd the frying pan at one time else balls will not get fried properly.
  7. Once balls are deep brown from outside transfer to a plate lined with paper towels. Turn off the heat and set balls aside until required.
  8. To prepare the sauce, heat oil in a saucepan add onion, ginger, garlic, chilies and fry over high heat for 2 – 3 minutes or until you can smell the aroma. No need to fry the onion for too long.
  9. Now add chopped capsicum, soya sauce, vinegar, chili sauce, tomato sauce, salt, black pepper and fry for 5 minutes over medium to high heat.
  10. Add water or vegetable stock whatever you are using I prefer using stock. Stir to combine and let sauce simmer for 5 minutes.
  11. Add the cornflour paste to thicken the sauce and again simmer the sauce over medium heat. Once sauce is thickened as per desired consistency add the manchurian balls to the sauce and simmer for 1 – 2 minutes.
  12. Turn off the heat garnish with chopped spring onion greens.
  13. Serve hot with fried rice.

    Hmm… I wonder what the “green chili sauce” is. So many different ones around the world. Is it just pure green Tabasco, or is it a green Mexican style sauce with onion, garlic, green chili and vinegar, or is it some kind of an Indian or East Asian style green chili sauce?

      Hello Arty, I have used pure Green Chili Sauce available in most of the supermarkets in India. Not the Tobasco or Mexican Green Sauce. This one used in the recipe is brand Ching’s. Hope this helps. Thanks, Hina
