Mushroom Manchurian Recipe - Mushroom Recipes

Mushroom Manchurian Recipe
Mushroom Manchurian is one of the popular Indo Chinese starter recipes. Hubby is a great fan of fried rice and any type of manchurian too and his staple order in restaurants is egg fried rice with any dry gobi recipe. Mittu has not yet developed her taste for manchurians so always give the deep fried ones before adding it to the sauce.

You can make manchurian either gravy / semi dry(saucy) or dry version, I have made it saucy great to go with fried rice.I love manchurian as a side dish for fried rice but not as a starter as I dont have the habit of having starters / soups just dive straight into the main dishes :)

I have a love-hate relationship with mushrooms in the recent days.....But still whenever I see white clean fresh mushrooms in pazhamudhir I cannot resist, I end up buying a pack as its rich in nutrients and a good source of vitamins too and helps to reduce blood cholesterol levels....So try to include mushrooms as a part of your weekly meal at least.

Mushroom Manchurian Recipe

My Notes:

  • Dont skip spring onions as it gives a nice flavour.
  • Adding onions is purely optional, you can skip that too.
  • Marinating mushroom 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.
  • dding cornflour water mixture is purely optional - 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.
  • I have used button mushroom you can use any type of mushroom.

  13. Hi Sharmi,
    I love your ricepes! I just wanted to know if I can substitute all purpose flour instead of corn flour? Or even corn meal instead of corn flour? If not, what can be used to substitute corn flour?

    1. You can try but cornflour gives crispness which will be missing if we add only maida...You can try with a combination of maida and rice flour....
