Vegetable Manchurian With Gravy

29 June, 2013

My laptop was not working and that's why I had to stay away from my lappy for so many days. Today, I am posting "Vegetable Manchurian" which is a delicious and easy Indo-Chinese recipe. They are deep fried vegetable balls dipped in a saucy gravy. Kids usually don't like vegetables but they will enjoy eating this in Chinese style and I'm sure it will be a hit. There are two versions of vegetable manchurian - dry and gravy.

The dry version is best served as an appetizer and the gravy goes well as a side dish with rice or noodles. These are healthy as well as super-yummy! So, to all the vegetarians out there- Have fun and enjoy making and eating this dish! (And don't forget to comment or subscribe! Njoy!)
