Chicken Manchurian

Ingredients

  • 500 grams boneless chicken (cut into 1 inch pieces)
  • 2 tbsp Cornflour
  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 egg (beaten)
  • Oil as required to deep fry
  • 1/2 tsp crushed ginger
  • 1/2 tsp crushed chilli peppers
  • 1/2 tsp crushed garlic
  • 1/2 tsp crushed green chillies
  • Handful of chopped cilantro/coriander
  • 250 ml chicken stock
  • 15 ml soya sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon of ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon of sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ajinomoto
  • 2 tbsp of cornflour mixed with water (extra cornflour is required to thicken the gravy)
  • 60 ml water
  • Spring onions to garnish (finely chopped)

Steps

  1. Take a bowl and mix in the following ingredients- corn flour, flour, salt, pepper along with the beaten egg. Mix this batter properly.
  2. Soak the chicken pieces in the batter one by one. Deep fry the chicken in a kadai with heated oil, till they turn golden brown in colour. Keep aside.
  3. Heat oil in a pan, fry the garlic and ginger till they become slightly brown in colour. This is the first step to make the manchurian sauce.
  4. Next add in the green chilies and cilantro leaves. Let this fry for a minute or so.
  5. Lower the heat and add in the chicken stock, soya sauce, salt, sugar, pepper and ajinomoto. Let this simmer and cook for 5-7 minutes.
  6. Finally add in corn flour mixed with water and bring to a boil. Put the fried chicken into the manchurian sauce and let it cook for 4-5 minutes.
  7. Pour into a serving bowl and garnish with chopped spring onions.
  8. Serve hot with fried rice or noodles.
