Veg Manchurian with Chinese sauce

Manchurian is our very own Indian recipe which takes front rather VIP seat in Indo Chinese cuisine. Go to any Chinese restro outside India and Manchurian cant be seen in the menu surprising rite? I guess this is the only Chinese thing that's actually "Made in India" well I am guessing Chinese are yet unaware of it otherwise so far they would have came up with Original Chinese Manchurian to retain the "made in china" tag !! well enough of jabber jabber ..

Here is what we need -

2 cups fine chopped cabbage
1/2 cup shredded carrot ( save some for sauce)
3 tbs ginger garlic paste ( divide half and save it for sauce)
1/2 cup chopped cauliflower
salt per taste
2 tbs corn starch ( 1 tbs to make dumplings+ 1 tbs for sauce)
2 tbs rice flour
1/4 cup cut green bell peppers
soy sauce
red chili sauce
1/2 tbs tomato paste
1/2 cup onion cut horizontally
tomato ketchup
oil to fry

In a mixing bowl, add chopped cabbage, carrot and cauliflower. add salt and leave it for 15 minutes. It will start to leave out water. Add rice flour and corn flour/corn starch. Rice flour adds the crunch. put ginger garlic paste.

Make small dumplings (add some water if neede) and fry it once the oil is hot enough. Take it out on kitchen paper towel to let it absorb extra oil.

To make sauce - Take 1 tbs oil, add ginger garlic, onion, bell pepper, carrot and tomato paste. Let it cook a bit for 5-7 minutes.

In a small bowl take remaining 1 tbs corn flour add some water and make a paste. Add this to the pan. add water depending on how much saucy you want. Add soy sauce ( I have dark soy so I use just 1 tbs), chili sauce and ketchup. Taste it and adjust salt and sauces.

let the dumplings rest or soak in the sauce for 20 minutes.
This is one delightful recipe; enjoy it with Noodles or fried rice !!

You can garnish it with some spring onion ..
