First of all a big thanks to you Richa for treating us with this yummy dish and also for telling the recipe, it came out really well.

In my last post Making HALF a Recipe I mentioned about the Knorr Chinese Packs and I have used schezuan  sauce in this recipe, but will post the review in my next post as it’s already quite lengthy to read.

  • Deep fry and transfer on kitchen towel to absorb the extra oil.

DSC02056 (1024x768)

  • Toss the Manchurian in sauce and serve immediately.

  • Adding rice flour gives that extra crunch you need not to fry it twice.
  • Deep fry the cauliflower just before serving.
  • Do not add the Manchurian in very hot sauce, let the sauce cool down a little bit then add.

I had send the recipe to Sliceoffme and to Citrus Spice UK.
