Vegetable Manchurian

Fried Rice with Vegetable Manchurian

Ingredients:For vegetable dumpling
vegetables finely chopped
(carrot,beans,peas,cabbage) - 2 cups
soy sauce - 1tsp
chili garlic sauce - 1tsp
MSG(ajinomoto) - 1/2 tsp
chopped ginger - 1 and 1/2 tsp
chopped green chili - 1 tsp
corn flour - 2 tsp
cooked rice - 1/2 cup (any kind of cooked rice)
salt as required
oil to fry the dumplings.

For the sauce
onion finely chopped - 1
garlic finely chopped - 2 tbsp
ginger finely chopped - 1 tbsp
MSG(ajinomoto) - 1/2 tsp
soy sauce - 1tsp
chili garlic sauce - 1tsp

green chili - 1 tsp
cilantro chopped - little
sugar - 1 tsp
salt as required
oil - 2 tbsp
water - 1 cup
tomato ketchup
corn flour ( mix in little water) - 3 tsp

Method : For Dumpling
For the dumpling vegetables should be finely chopped, using a food chopper would be better option. Boil the vegetables for just 5 mins, and drain all the water. To the vegetable add all the (dumpling) ingredients and mix well and roll into small (golf) balls. Deep fry the dumplings in oil till it turns to a golden brown colour. If the dumpling breaks add little more rice to the mixture as it gives a kind of binding. Just this fried dumpling by itself would taste really good. (trust me try one).

For Sauce
Heat oil in a non stick saucepan, add the finely chopped garlic, ginger and fry for couple of mins. See to it you don't burn the garlic. Add the onions and green chili and fry well. Keep adding all the remaining (sauce) ingredients one by one except water and corn flour.
This dish is really hot, by adding sugar it would give little sweetness to the dish which I like it, if you like it hot don't add the sugar. Now the dry sauce is ready. If you want dry manchurian add the fried dumplings to the sauce, mix carefully and the dry vegetable manchurian is ready.
If you want your dish little gravy (which I made today), add the water to the dry sauce and let it boil for few mins and now add the corn flour mixed with water spoon by spoon. This will thicken the gravy. Last add the fried dumplings and garnish with spring onion(optional). This dish goes very well with cooked plain basmati or fried rice. Enjoy!!!
