Preparation Steps of Vegetable Manchurian
Take all these finely chopped vegetables in a bowl, now add required amount of salt, black pepper powder, MSG, chopped garlic and gnger, add maida or refined flour, corn flour.
Now mix well the entire mixture without adding water because vegetables contain water content. If the mixture is not bind well then you may add very little bit of water or vegetable stock. Now turn this entire mixture into (lemon sized) manchurian balls and keep aside.
Now put oil for deep frying add manchurian balls in it and keep on a low or medium flame fry until it will be half cook and then keep aside because these balls absorb oil heavily so that i fry these manchurian balls twice that’s why i switch on the flame and fry these half cooked manchurian balls again this time the manchurians fry till it becomes crispy and also turns brown in colour.
While frying manchurian balls switch on another stove and heat 2 or 3 tbsp of oil in another wide bottomed pan add garlic, ginger, green chilies saute it until green chilies become lightly brown now add soya sauce, salt to taste, vinegar, red chili paste, MSG mix all of these add some onion bulbs (onion bulbs means middle part of onions), 1/2 cup vegetable stock or water mix it well.
Now for thickening take a small cup add some water in 1 tbsp of cornflour mix it well without any lumps and keep aside. Manchurian are fried well transfer these balls from deep frying pan into a wide bottomed pan or sauce mixture pan mix it the sauce will be coated well on Manchurian balls now add cornflour mixture(whatever we prepare before), spring onions switch off the flame.
Garnish with spring onions and serve hot hot veg manchurian and it is so yummy by eating along with tomato ketchup. you can also easily prepare Paneer Manchurian in the same way
