Prawn Manchurian Recipe - Chilli Prawn Manchurian Dry Recipe

Prawn manchurian is a recipe which was on my mind for quite some time. It is one dish which we order in any restaurants..It is totally delicious. I made it few days back and it was yummy..

This dish goes well with any chinese main course like noodles, fried rice..You can even have it as a starter with soup..I made this as dry version, you can make it as gravy too, for that add some water after you add sauce and then boil it..Then add the cornflour slurry and thicken it a bit, then add fried prawns and finish it.

Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..
