MY FAVORITE SNACK - Veg Manchurian

I love chinese food very much. Yesterday I prepared vegetable manchurian. This is my family's favorite. This is my entry to Hima's What's your favorite snack? Hima! thanks for hosting such a lovely event. Here is my recipe:

Veg Manchurian:
Prep Time : 20 minutes
Cooking time : 20 minutes
Serves : 3

Ingredients (For Manchuria Balls):

1 cup finely chopped carrots (I used mini chopper to cut all the vegetables)
1/2 cup finely chopped beans
1/2 cup finely chopped coriander leaves
1/2 cup finely chopped onions (optional)
1/2 cup finely chopped cabbage
4 tbsp maida or all purpose flour
4 tbsp cornflour
2 Eggs
1 tsp ginger garlic paste
salt as per taste
1 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp red chilli powder
1/2 tsp Ajinamoto (Chinese salt)

For Tadka/Talimpu/Popu :
1 tbsp oil
3 tbsp finely chopped garlic
2 tbsp finely chopped green chillies
2 tbsp finely chopped curry leaves
2 tsp dark soya sauce (optional)
2 tsp tomato sauce
finely chopped coriander leaves for garnishing

Method :
1. Mix all above ingredients (Manchurian balls ingredients) in a bowl into a tight content, make small size balls, deep fry in oil till light brown color on medium flame.

2. Heat oil in a kadai, add chopped garlic, chopped green chillies and chopped curry leaves, saute for few seconds, add soya sauce, tomato sauce and 1/4 cup water, mix well, bring to a boil.

3. Now add above fried manchurian balls, mix gently, fry for more 5-10 minutes on low flame. After veg. manchurian becomes desired hot, turn off the heat and garnish with finely chopped coriander leaves.

Note : 1. If you dont like eggs, you can replace with water to mix the contents tightly. But eggs will give more taste.

2. Along with above vegetables, you can add finely chopped capsicum and gobi also.
