Vegetable Manchurian is a popular dish and is liked by every one. It is served as a starter in every restaurant in India. In this recipe I have used chilli paste made with Kashmiri dry chillies. I have prepared vegetable balls with different sauces according to my taste. It is spicy, sour but tastes good. I have made it a bit like a gravy, but if you want it to be drier or semi gravy, you can prepare it.
To make vegetable balls, you can use any vegetables you like. Some add paneer as well. But I have not added paneer in this. In this recipe I have used cooked rice to bind nicely. For me, it was very difficult to make round balls. So I just made small balls of whatever shape I could get. You can add chopped green chillies, pepper powder, chilli oil, chilli paste and sesame oil. You can add anything according to your taste to the balls.
For making the sauce, I have used green chillies and chilli paste. It is up to you, how spicy you want the sauce to be. You can use chilli oil, sesame oil, chilli sauce or anything you want to try. I always change my ingredients to have a new taste.
