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.

  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.
