Veg Manchurian

Super Bowl Sunday is not too far away…Are you running out of ideas for your Super Bowl party?  Here is one that will definitely tickle your taste buds.  Veg Manchurian is what I am bringing to the Super Bowl party.  Thank you Sonal for making me part of the Super bowl collective post.

DSC_4265-2Did you all plan what are you making this Super Bowl get together?  If not, don’t forget to add Veg Manchurian on your list which is bursting with flavors of garlic, ginger, soy sauce..  I made this last year for my get together and it was a hit.  I have been requested to make these quite often by my brother in law who is a foodie himself.


You can make the veggie balls ahead to save time which makes it easier the day of.  Make sure you all give me your feedback on how you like it..

Ingredients:

For the Veg Balls:

  • 2 cups cabbage, shredded
  • 3 carrots, shredded
  • 1/2 small cauliflower, shredded
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 cup corn starch
  • 1/8 cup corn flour
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tsp chili garlic sauce
  • oil for frying ( i used Canola)

For the Sauce:

  • 1 tbsp ginger, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 small-medium red onion, chopped
  • 2 green chilies, sliced slanted
  • 4 spring onions, chopped
  • 2 tbsp ketchup
  • 1 tbsp chili garlic sauce
  • 4 tbsp soy sauce (i used mixed of dark and regular)
  • 3 tbsp vinegar or to taste
  • 1 tbsp of olive oil
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tbsp corn starch (mixed in water)

Directions:

Peel your carrots and set aside.  Wash all the vegetables and let the water drain completely. Chop them using a chopper and take it out in a mixing bowl.

To the mixture of veggies, add chili garlic sauce, black pepper, corn starch, corn flour, a little soy sauce.  Mix it all together and test it for salt.  If needed, add a pinch of salt.

Now make the balls one at a time depending on how big or small you want to make.  I made them bite size.  If the mixture is not holding together, then you can add a little more corn starch.

Heat the oil for frying.  Place one ball to make sure it is staying together, before you add a few.  Fry them on low to medium heat.  Drain them on a tissue so that the oil is absorbed.

DSC_4258To make the sauce, heat a tablespoon of oil.  Add chopped garlic, ginger and green chilies.  Saute for a couple of minutes.  Now add, chopped onions and saute until they are slightly pink.  Now add soy sauce, chili garlic sauce, ketchup, vinegar and a little water.  Bring the sauce to a boil and add corn starch mixed with water to it.  This will help the sauce to get thicker.
