Veg Manchurian. Restaurnat Style Veg Manchurian.
Being a carnivore….never appreciated veggie food in the restaurant. But very rarely do order veg’ appetizers and soup for my friends(almost all my friends were vegetarians, during college). So only on such occasions, came across some delightful veg recipes, purely practised only in restaurants…..got to say ‘veg Manchurians are the yummiest veg appetizers’. Later I did make them several times at hostel. Since the kitchen was not well equipped, it never turned up like the restaurant ones.
As my pantry was full of veggies and I was bit confused what to fix, thought of my long lost fav’ recipe! Good that I had all the sauces this time in hand. As most of the time, I will be missing few ingredients that the recipe calls for….so I give up making them on the whole!!!
Veggies chopped into teeny meeny bits(carrots, beans, cabbage was my choice)
White pepper 1 spoon
Soy sauce light
Green chilies 2 chopped finely
Green onions(white part alone finely chopped)
Egg whites from an egg
Oil for deep frying
Soy sauce heavy
Hot sauce(optional, I didnt use any)
Onion 1 medium finely chopped
Green chilies 3-4 chopped
Garlic 7 cloves chopped
Ginger 2″ chopped
Green onion 4-6 chopped
Sesame oil few spoons.
Steam cook all the veggies and squeeze away the water. Maybe use them in making soup later!
Now mix salt, MSG, pepper, chilies, soy sauce, flour, egg white and green onions. Bring them to tuff dough. Make equal parts out of it.
Now deep fry them in warm oil, till golden o reddish brown.
In a separate pan, heat sesame oil. Add chilies, onions, ginger and garlic, saute them. Add fried veg-balls too.
Now add all the sauces, let it coat to all the sides, add green onions and remove from heat.
Enjoy as an appetizer! Yummy right!!!
