  3. Hi, I tried this recipe. it tastes really nice but the colour of the dish is not as brown as you have shown... while frying the chicken pcs in oil, the corn flour batter started to fall off, even though the batter was thick.... Also, i wanted to know, why have u added cornstarch slurry to the dish? how does it help?

    Regards,
    Someone who likes your blog :)

  4. @Anon...Thanks for trying it out..The colour is not a matter, it depends on what soya sauce you use. Adding cornstarch slurry helps the machurian to get thick..Heat the oil to high then drop the chicken, so that the cornstarch doesn't fall off..
