One dish that makes its appearance in all the so called Chinese menu in Indian restaurants is Manchurian. We all loved it so much that, whenever we friends went out, we ordered this. These are served as starters and we would eat these so much that we would get full by the time we finished starters :).
8-9 pieces of cauliflower(gobhi)or babycorn
2 tea spns besan(gram flour)
1/4 tbl spns maida or corn flour
1 tea spn ginger garlic paste
1/2 cup onion(finely chopped)
1 tea spn chili powder
1 green chilli
1 tbl spn tomato ketchup
2 tea spns soya sauce
For extra crunchiness, add 1 tea spn of rice flour in the batter.
Mix the flours with chili powder, 1/2 spn ginger-garlic paste, 1 tea spn soya sauce, mix well with little water and salt. Dip cauliflower(or babycorn) in this mixture(there should be a coating of the mixture on the vegetables) and deep fry in oil.
