  • For dry Manchurian you can avoid water. Keep rest of the recipe same except of adding water.
  • Add frying cauliflower into fried spring onion and soya sauce. Nail it with tooth pick and serve it hot and spicy chilly garlic sauce.
  • Instead of using only cauliflower you can use an array of vegetable. Just chop them finely and you can use bread crumps as a substitute to cornflour, infact it makes the manchurian balls more crispy.
  • Serve Super Hot. Enjoy!
