I have already shared the veg manchurian gravy version that we love with steamed rice or veg fried rice. But this time I am sharing the dry veg manchurian recipe. We love to have it as a snack occasionally.

Making manchurian balls is little time consuming. But if you have used food processor or chopper for chopping task. This can be done in less time.

After that making thick, spicy, slightly tangy and sweet sauce will take just 5-7 minutes only. At the end, mix the balls with this sauce and it is ready.
