At home we love chinese food and I make it often. But I have rarely shared those recipes here. So I am planning to add more of these recipes in near future.

There are two versions of veg manchurian recipe. One is with gravy which I am sharing today. The other is veg manchurian dry without gravy that is served as a starter. I will share that soon. Among these two, we prefer the gravy version.

The gravy is spicy, slightly tangy and garlicky. That tastes best when mixed with steamed rice or fried rice or noodles.

The balls are made from mixed vegetables. Here I have used cabbage, capsicum carrot and spring onions. To save the time and energy, I used processor to chop the veggies instead of doing it by knife.

I would highly recommend to use naturally fermented soy sauce. Never use chemically produced soy sauce which has some kind of funky smell and strong taste which I do not like at all.

1) First chop all the veggies for manchurian balls. You can do this manually by using knife, it will take some time. I always use food processor. So for that roughly chop the veggies (cabbage, carrot, green onion and capsicum) and add into the food processor jar.

2) Pulse it till they are finely minced or chopped.

6) Start shaping the balls. You will get around 10 balls.
