Chicken Manchurian Semi gravy style

During college days, we used to visit Chicken Sampoorna hotel near NJJ BUS Stand at Coimbatore with my Nagercoil friends.  We always order Ginger chicken and Chicken manchurian along with some fried rice and naan, when we visit this place. I can still remember, how we finish the food. Wow.. Cant forget those days Julie akka, Mado, Linda, Jovita, Jermey. Love you guys..

I tried my best to get that taste.

You will need:
  • 1 medium onion (cut into bite sized pieces)
  • 1 capsicum(green pepper) cut into bite sized pieces
  • 5 pods of garlic. chopped very finely
  • 1 inch ginger (chopped very finely)
  • 2 tsp soy sauce
  • ½ tsp chilli garlic paste
  • 2 tsp vinegar/ lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp corn flour mixed with ½ cup water
  • 2 pinch ajino motto
  • Extra salt to taste
  • oil for deep frying
  • Green onion..for garnishing
 For Marinade:
  • 1 lb chicken (boneless thighs) cut into bite size pieces
  •  ½ tsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp ginger garlic paste
  • ½  tsp pepper powder
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tbsp corn flour 
  • salt to taste


Step 1: 

Cut the chicken into bite sized pieces and marinate with the ingredients under the marinade section and let it marinate for few hours inside the refrigerator.

Step 2: 

Heat the oil for deep frying and when its hot fry the chicken until its 90% cooked. Dont cook it for long time, coz overcooking the chicken will harden the meat. 

Step 3: 

Now heat 3 tbsp oil in another pan and add the chopped garlic and saute it for 2 mins then add the ginger to it and saute it for 1 more min. Now add the onions and the capsicum and saute it for few more mins. 

Step 4:

Now add the chilli garlic paste, soy sauce, vinegar, ajino motto and the chicken. Check for salt at this time. Now to get the semi gravy consistency, add the corn flour mixed with water until you get the desired consistency. 

Wahlah... Yummy chicken manchurian is now ready to serve with yummy chicken fried rice.
