Chicken Manchurian / Indo - Chinese dish





Chicken Manchurian:

Today, I am going to share here is the part of the Indo – Chinese Cuisine. Chicken Manchurian is a famous party appetizer that is very easy to prepare. It is very delicious & loved by all at my home. After a couple of trials, I settled with this easiest & yummiest recipe of Chicken Manchurian.

In this recipe, boneless chicken pieces are marinated in exotic spices and deep fried in oil and then cooked in spicy hot sauce. It makes a best combo with  fried rice . Also it can be served as main course dish or snacks.

Try this tasty , all time favorite Indo – Chinese dish & enjoy ..:)

  12. Dear Jay
    How are you? Very nice recipe. I am just visiting blogs and eating virtually as much as possible. You have cooked an awesome dish, must try it.
    During my stay in deserts had good interaction with chinese chefs. I can tell you, the Indo-chinese dishes are almost like chinese food except we use too much sauce of all kind. They use little of Soya or vinegar compared to what we use. The sweet and sour dishes are just like ours. The food diversity is also too much like India. Most of my chinese friends were surprised to learn that we eat Sechaun style food. They consider it to be too hot. Also I saw them using star anise, soya combo and a spice called Hwa jao, looks like black pepper but different fragrance. Extensive cinnamon is also used in some dishes. Lamb meat boiled with Cinnamon, soya and vinegar was awesome.
    Let me see what all I have missed.
    have a nice week
