How to make Green Manchurian

  1. Squeeze the water from the cucumber and bottle gourd. Also blend the mint leaves coarsely.
  2. Chop the spring onions finely, separate the white part. Also chop the fresh basil leaves finely. Blend the spinach leaves coarsely to form a thick puree. Keep aside.
  3. In a bowl, mix half of the spinach puree with the moong sprouts, cucumber and bottle gourd. Add the cabbage as well.
  4. Then add both flours, garlic, ginger spring onions, mint, kasoori methi, coriander leaves along with the soya sauce. Add in salt, pepper, paprika powder and sesame seeds.
  5. Heat 1/2 tsp of oil and add it to the mixture. Mix it well, grease your palms with a little oil and make balls shapes.
  6. Heat oil in a pan and deep fry these balls. Then spread it on an absorbent paper .
  7. To prepare the sauce, heat oil in a pan, add the spring onion whites, saute and add the ginger, garlic. Now add half of the spinach puree.
  8. Cook this for 3 to 4 minutes. Then add the corn flour with a little water.
  9. Stir it for 3 minutes. Add the soya sauce, chilli sauce and tomato sauce, add the salt, pepper, sugar and all the herbs.
  10. Let the sauce thicken a little, now add the fried balls. Let it mix well and coat every ball.
  11. Serve it with a garnish of coriander leaves and spring onion greens.

My Tip:

Add hot oil to the ball mixture so that they become soft. Sesame seeds make the balls crisp. Fry it on a medium heat so that all the veggies cook well.
