Baby Corn Manchurian

Baby Corn Manchurian is a very popular Indo- Chinese dish. It is a very tasty dish and is liked by the kids and adults equally. This is one of my favorite and I learnt this recipe from my brother. Do try making this at home and enjoy :-)


Ingredients:
  • Fresh Baby Corn*- 25- 26
  • Oil- 3 tsp + for deep frying
  • Garlic pods, big sized- 4-5
  • Bell pepper (capsicum), small sized- 1/4
  • Onion, medium sized- 1/2
  • Soy sauce- 1 Tbsp
  • Tomato ketchup- 1/4 cup
  • Chilli Garlic sauce- 1 tsp
  • Green Onion (scallions)- As required (optional)
  • Salt- To taste
For Batter:
  • All Purpose Flour (Maida)- 1/4 cup
  • Corn Flour- 1/4 cup
  • Ginger- Garlic paste- 1 tsp
  • Salt- To taste
*You can also use cauliflower or mushroom instead of baby corn.



Procedure:

Cut each baby corn into two pieces.



Also chop onions and slice garlic pods. Then cut the bell pepper into thin strips.



Now prepare the batter. Take all purpose flour, corn flour, ginger- garlic paste (I used fresh) and salt in a mixing bowl. Add water in small amounts to make a thick batter.



Add the baby corn pieces into the batter and mix it gently until all the pieces get a uniform coating. Meanwhile keep the oil for heating on medium- high heat.



Now deep fry these battered pieces in batches until it turns golden brown on both sides. Once done drain them on a paper towel to drain excess oil. 



Continue deep frying with the rest of the baby corns.
Then take a wide bottomed pan and heat oil in it. Then add garlic slices, chopped onions and sliced bell pepper and start frying it on medium flame. Sprinkle little salt at this point.



Once the onion turns slight brown, add the soy sauce and mix well. Then add tomato ketchup and chilli garlic sauce. Give a good mix.



Then finally add the deep fried baby corns and mix well. Let it get heated for a minute. 



Then turn off the heat. Sprinkle some chopped green onions. 
Baby Corn Manchurian is ready!!



Serve it hot as it is or along with noodles or fried rice. Above measurement serves two people.
