I had an eye on this veg manchurian for a long time. I’ve tried Gobi & baby corn manchurian so many times but never tried this. Last weekend I prepared this along with fried rice and peas gravy. I followed Tarla dalal’s recipe. It was very nice. I’ll will post the fried rice & peas gravy soon. Now comes the vegetable manchurian,
