6.After that heat oil for deep frying in a kadai. add one piece of ball to the hot oil. if the ball does not stick or settle down at the bottom of the kadai, but comes up steadily then the oil is ready for frying these veg Manchurian balls.

7. Then gently add the balls in the hot oil. the oil should be of medium hot. If the oil will be too much heat then the Manchurian balls will be browned from top but uncooked from inside. And if the oil is less hot it will make the balls absorb too much of oil. so be careful.

1.When the balls are fried, then its time for its sauce. Take one pan, heat oil in which we fried the balls. Then add garlic, ginger & green chilies, chopped finely. After that stir it and sauté for about a minute on a low flame. Then add spring onion in it. Then stir and sauté till all the ingredients become soften.

2. After that add the sauces – soy sauce, tomato ketchup and red chili sauce or green chili sauce. mix all the ingredients properly.

3.Then sim the gas & sprinkle corn flour. adding corn flour is not mandatory. stir well, Then immediately add black pepper and salt as per requirement. stir again. after adding corn flour, sauce will start to thicken, so one has to be quick. keep a check on the salt as the soy sauce, tomato ketchup and chili sauce already contains salt.

4. After that add fried vegetables balls into prepared sauce and stir properly so that sauce coats the balls completely. Then switch off the gas and add vinegar in it.

5. Finally toss and stir it properly. Then serve the Manchurian hot garnished with some spring onion.


  1. At the time of frying keep a check that the balls does not stick or settle down at the bottom of the pan, but comes up steadily then oil is ready.
  2. Less hot oil will absorb more oil so the oil should be heated in medium.
  3. While making Manchurian sauce keep in mind that , after adding corn flour sauce will start thicken very fast, so be fast at that time.
