Chicken Manchurian Gravy Recipe– Continuing with my Indo-Chinese cuisine here is another popular Indo-Chinese Recipe, the Chicken Manchurian recipe. The chicken manchurian recipe is definitely a must try with the chicken fried rice. I always make it with either the egg fried rice or the chicken fried rice.

Firstly cut the boneless chicken into medium size pieces. In a large bowl mix together all the ingredients maida, cornflour, salt, ginger garlic and black pepper for making the batter.
Add water to these ingredients to form a smooth batter without any lumps.
Dip the chicken pieces in the prepared batter until they are well coated with it. Fry the coated chicken pieces in hot oil one by one.
While frying, the chicken pieces might start to stick to each other due to the cornflour. So keep stirring the chicken pieces lightly while frying, so that they don’t stick to each other. Fry until they turn golden brown.Remove the golden fried chicken with a slotted spoon and drain onto kitchen tissues.
Leave 2 tbsp oil in the same pan after removing the excess oil from it and fry the onions on high heat till translucent.
Add the ginger garlic paste, and fry for a further 30 secs.
Add water or chicken stock and cook till it gives a boil.
Add soy sauce, red chilli sauce, tomato sauce and crushed black pepper. Mix well and let the sauce simmer for a couple of minutes.
Add the cornflour paste to thicken the sauce.
