It is a mouthwatering dish. The tint of black pepper and ajinomotoare added for additional savor to it. And the half cooked vegetables and thick gravy adds unique texture to this. It is an exciting dish to serve at any special occasion or party.

I tried it last weekend and the result was really amazing. Chicken stalk is the key ingredient if this dish. Use of soy sauce and ajinomoto enhanced the taste. And I really loved the recipe and the cooking style of this popular Chicken Manchurian.

Chicken manchurian is my favorite Indo-Chinese dish. I prepared the restaurant style chicken Manchurian last night. The taste was just awesome. Spices and the fried chicken pieces helped it become a scrumptious meal. The flavors of soy sauce and spices made the dish fantastic. My mom loved it too. I am very happy with this recipe and will recommend it to all my friends.
