Baby-corn Manchurian (Indo-Chinese)

Indo-Chinese food is my favorite. If you are wondering what is that -Chinese food with a little Indian twist is called Indo-Chinese. Indo Chinese cuisine is the adaptation of Chinese seasoning and cooking according to Indian tastes.Veg Manchurian, Gobi Manchurian, Hakka Noodles, Veg Fried Rice, Sesame Veg Toast, Schezwan Noodles etc comes under this list. What we eat at Indian restaurants will have a little Indian twist in everything. I prepared baby corn manchurian semi gray for chapathis and the recipe is very simple.

    • It looks difficult but it hardly takes 30 minutes to prepare this dish. 10 minutes for preparation and 20-25 maximum to cook this dish and put it together.I make rotis myself but my husband helps in preparing the dough 🙂 When a side dish takes too much time to cook what we usually do is just order in rotis from some restaurant.
