For the Manchurian Balls

  1. For the Manchurian balls, we first have to prep the ingredients and keep so it is easier and faster to prepare. For that, finely chop the cabbage, onions, garlic and chillies and grate the carrots.
  2. In a deep mixing bowl put the cabbage.
  3. Then add grated carrot to it. Cabbage and carrot are the 2 most important ingredients for Veg Manchurian balls. You can even add french beans to this recipe if you like.
  4. Now add the onions to this as well.
  5. Add the finely chopped garlic. You can even grate the garlic if you wish but it make sure there are no big pieces as they might be pungent to bite on.
  6. Also add the finely chopped green chillies to the bowl.
  7. Add the salt and pepper to the vegetables. Salt releases the water from the vegetables which will enable the mixture to combine properly without adding any additional water.
  8. Now add the binding agent – cornflour.
  9. Add plain flour as well. Plain flour gives crispiness to the vegetable balls.
  10. Start mixing the ingredients with your hands. It will first be a dry mixture.
  11. When you start mixing a little bit more, the vegetables will start releasing water and the wet mixture will start coming together. It will look like this. Do not squeeze the mixture too much as it might become very loose.
  12. Take small spoonfuls of the mixture in your hands and shape them into small balls. If the mixture is too sticky then you might have to apply a little oil on your hands before shaping them into balls. It is very important that the balls hold their shape. We have made 24 Veg Manchurian balls.
  13. Heat oil in a deep non-stick pan, enough to cover a few balls at a time. Deep fry a few vegetable balls at a time, on a medium flame, until golden brown from all sides. It is very important to have the oil at the right temperature while deep frying. If the oil is too hot, the balls will burn from outside and remain undercooked and doughy from insde. We have fried the vegetable balls in batches of 5, each batch taking 4-5 minutes to cook.
  14. Drain on absorbent paper and keep aside.

For the Manchurian gravy

  1. To make vegetable manchurian recipe | Indo Chinese veg manchurian | restaurant style vegetable manchurian gravy | we have to make the Manchurian gravy first. Combine the cornflour with 4 tbsps water in a small bowl and keep aside.
  2. Heat the oil in a wok or a deep non-stick pan on a high flame and add the garlic. Almost all Chinese cooking is done on a high flame to get an intense flavor.

  4. Now finally add the finely chopped green chillies. These 3 ingredients form the base of chinese cooking flavors. Mix well and stir fry only for a few seconds as we do not want them to burn.
  5. Now add the spring onion whites. We have not finely chopped these as we still want them to retain a bite.
  6. With this, also add the capsicum. These are also not finely chopped.
  7. Sauté these on a high flame for 1 minute only.
  8. Now add the soy sauce and red chilli sauce and stir for a few seconds.
  9. Now add 2 1/2 cups of water, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 2 minutes, while stirring occasionally. For a more intense flavor, you can even use vegetable stock. We have added so much water because we are making manchurian with gravy. If you want to make it without gravy, then check out the recioe for Dry Manchurian.
  10. Now add the cornflour-water mixture and cook for 3-4 minutes, while stirring occasionally.  As cornflour does not dissolve in water, always stir the mixture well before adding it to any sauce or gravy. The reason for adding this is for the gravy to get thicker as it cooks. If the gravy is too thin after 3 to 4 minutes, you can add more of the cornflour-water mixture. But if the gravy is too thick, you can add more water or stock to it to adjust the consistency.
  11. Add the salt and pepper at this point.
