Fish Manchurian - Gravy Version


I love chinese foods, more than anything else. In this blog alone I have around 38 recipes which are chinese. I never thought that seafoods can be made in chinese style. I  have often seen that it takes part a major role in restaurant menu, but I have never ordered it. Oneday we thought to go bold and ordered chilli fish from our favorite restaurant. I was so amazed by the taste, and it inspired me to give a try of my own.



I thought of making it like a manchurian. Hubby bought some beautiful fish from the market and those were perfect for this. I was so amazed by the result, they tasted so fresh and yummy. I am planning to make more fish recipes in the future…I hope you will love it as much as I did..
