Low Fat Soya Chunks Manchurian / Meal Maker Manchurian


This recipe was in the draft for over 4 months..I don’t know why I kept it so long to post..Most probably I forgot about this..Now time for the big reveal..Usually Manchurians are pretty much fatty..They are deep fried and then tossed in a spicy sauce which is so good, but since it is deep fried you can’t dig into it more often..But this one you can eat pretty much daily..YES DAILY..It is a low fat version of the fatty Manchurian, but you don’t need to sacrifice taste to eat healthy. 



And those lovely looking chopstick is given by my sister 'Sindhu'..She bought that from japan..Thanks Sis for that, i love it so much..Now with no more delay off you go to the recipe..
