veg manchurian



Veg Manchurian is a popular Indo-Chinese dish made from vegetable dumplings tossed in a spicy, sweet, and tangy sauce. This delicious dish has two different forms - dry and gravy. In dry Veg Manchurian, the dumplings are served without the sauce, while in the gravy version, the dumplings are doused in the delectable Manchurian sauce. The vegetable dumplings are made from finely chopped mixed vegetables which are mixed with flour and then deep fried until golden. It's typically served as a starter or a side dish.
