Baby Corn Manchurian Dry Recipe - How to make dry baby corn manchurian

Baby Corn Manchurian
Baby corn manchurian is a great indo chinese starter...Baby Corn is one of my fav veggies that I can have baby corn in any form.I made it just like Gobi Manchurian but have added the recipe with little adjustments in quantity. You can make it more on the gravy side or dry manchurian as I have made it.And this time I didnt deep fry them, instead toasted them in dosa tawa and there was no much taste difference.And you can make it even more gravy kind or dry as per your preference.

Thanks for all ur wishes....My lil one did have a nice time and enjoyed the day thoroughlly!! Now recipe time...

Baby Corn Manchurian Recipe

My Notes:

  • You can deep fry baby corn until crispy and add it to the sauce.Do not let it become soggy. Serve immediately.
  • Adding onions is purely optional, you can skip that too.
  • Marinating baby corn in the batter gives a nice firm outer layer.
  • Chilli sauce and soy sauce forms the base for any manchurian. I used green chilli sauce as I had only that, you can add the red chilli sauce too.
  • The consistency is purely your choice, you can make it saucy like how I have did or make it dry too.
  • Always serve hot as it may turn soggy when resting time is given.
  • You can even add 1 tsp cornflour mixed with 2tbsp water and add it along with tomato sauce , this is just to make the sauce thick
  • Make sure not to saute the veggies for a long time in the sauce as the veggies need to be crisp.
  • Dont add more soya sauce than the mentioned amount else it will change the taste and make the manchurian more darker in color.

  23. Thanks for posting all these wonderful recipes-you give such detailed instructions and photos that even amateurs like me can attempt these dishes!
    I made this recipe today and it came out very tasty-I just had couple of questions: how should we make sure that the corn is evenly coated with the batter? Also, my corn started sticking together when I was frying...any ideas why or how to prevent that or is it normal? Taste was great in the end, so thanks again!

    1. Baby corn should have a thin layer of coating as shown in the stepwise pic....Sometimes it sticks because of the cornflour in the can separate them while frying. But while toasting it doesnt stick, only while frying that problem may occur.

  24. Thank you for your immediate reply! Your dishes are a big hit with my family! Please post some more of your great ideas in the kids lunch box menu..thanks once again for this wonderful site!

  25. can we add chilli flakes instead of chilli powder in the batter?
