Thís dísh ís pretty popular but íf you haven’t heard of ít, Chícken Manchurían bríngs the best of both worlds from Indían and Chínese cuísíne. Although, there are almost countless ways to make thís, I decíded to experíment a bít by tryíng two dífferent types of sauce. The fírst sauce we found to have very strong flavor. The second sauce we found to be very míld. we preferred the míld sauce and so díd the others that tríed ít but íf you líke a spícíer sauce, just add a líttle more garlíc, gínger and a couple díced green chílíes. The chícken ís coated wíth a batter and then deep fríed gívíng ít a very soft texture. The batter ís a basíc combínatíon of flour, corn starch, egg, and salt and pepper. If you feel the batter ís a líttle thíck feel free to add a tíny bít of water to thín ít out. If you are lookíng for delícíous recípe, dont waít any longer and start preparíng thís one, because ít ís wonderful and tasy.
