Baby Corn Manchurian


This is one of my favourite chinese dishes.Whenever I go to a restaurant, I would never forget to order manjurian either baby corn or chicken in it.The sweet taste of the tomato sauce combined with sour and hot tastes of soya n chilli sauces give it a heavenly taste. I made this one for my sister. Enjoy browsing n cooking this recipe.

Ingredients :
  • Baby corn - 8
  • Maida/all purpose flour - 5 tblsp
  • Corn flour - 2 tblsp
  • Ginger garlic paste - 1 tsp
  • Red chilli powder - 1 tsp
  • Salt As needed
  • Oil For deep frying
Other Ingredients :
  • Ginger garlic paste - 1 tsp
  • Big Onion - 1
  • Capsicum - 1
  • Green chillies (optional) - 2 nos.
  • Cilantro/Coriander leaves - 1 sprig
  • Spring onion - 1/2 bunch
  • Red chilli powder/pepper powder - 1 tsp( I used red chilli powder here)
  • Chilli sauce - 1 tsp
  • Tomato sauce - 1 1/2 tsp
  • Soya sauce - 2 tsp ( Use more if u need)
  • Corn flour 1 tsp dissolved in 1/2 cup water
  • Salt
Method :

1.Chop baby corns as shown below. Mix maida ,cornflour,redchilli powder,ginger garlic paste and salt and make it into a batter.

2.Dip baby corns into the batter.(Add enough water to the batter so that it must be well coated with the batter).Deep fry the coated baby corns.

3.Now,take a pan and pour 2 Tbsp of oil and add garlic and fry.Then add onion and fry until it turns golden.

4.Now add the capsicum. After frying for a while,add all the sauces.Add the GG paste as well.

5.Let the baby corns get coated with it.Dissolve 1 1/2 tsp of corn flour in 1/2 cup water.Pour this into the pan.This gives the juicy texture to our dish.

6.Garnish with spring onion (am not having it right now :( )and serve.{Beware,if u leave the dish n go out for a while, u will not get even a single piece of babycorn }.

Note :
  • If u dont have chilli sauce, u can add the normal tomato sauce along with red chilli powder.
  • Dissolve only 1 tsp of corn flour in water.(Dont add much water too).
  • I forgot to add GG paste before adding onion.Thats why I added it in the later stage.
  • I avoided adding green chilli,if u want it more spicy then add it.
