Chinese-inspired Vegetable Manchurian recipe with a detailed step by step pictorial
25 years ago, my mom kept a recipe journal. In it, she documented culinary experiments unfamiliar to her. Over the years, she got comfortable in the kitchen and developed her own style of cooking. The recipe journal lay forgotten, collecting dust in one of the store rooms. Miraculously, she has never gotten rid of the journal. She took it with her every time we moved houses.
Fast forward to January 2016. I discovered the journal whilst cleaning my closet and immediately took to reading her recipes. (Side note: Oh, the cleaning session was forgotten). What excited me was that my mom’s energy and enthusiasm about food burned through every page. It felt nice to know that my passion for good food comes from her. Sure, I take the passion to a crazy new level in the family. But basically, what I’m tying to say is, my Ma is a great cook and I’d probably spend a lifetime trying to become as amazing as she is.
Anyway – this recipe journal has an ingenious recipe for Vegetable Manchurian. The minute I saw it, I knew I had to give it a try. Incidentally, veg manchurian has also been one highly requested recipe on this blog. Here, I bring you a step by step pictorial of what I believe is a delicious homemade version of this popular recipe. (more…)
