Directions for Healthy Chicken Manchurian Recipe
To begin making Healthy Chicken Manchurian Recipe, mix corn flour with 5-6 tablespoons of water in a mixing bowl to make a smooth lump free paste.
Heat a nonstick pan, heat oil on a medium heat.
When the oil is hot, turn the heat to low and add onion, garlic and ginger and saute till the onions turn translucent in colour.
now add green chillies and saute till they are a bit tender and they impart the pungency into the recipe.
Now add the chicken pieces, required salt, and turmeric powder.
Also add chilli powder, cover and cook for 25-30 minutes on low heat or until the chicken pieces are cooked well. Do not cover the vessel while cooking. covering will soften the chicken more.
Now add soy sauce and tomato sauce, mix well, add black pepper powder. Saute further to combine well.
Now add cornflour paste, and vinegar. Keep the heat low since the corn flour paste thickens soon.
Add about 1/2 cup of warm water. Cook further for 5-7 minutes in low heat, stirring in between to help keep the upper layer moist. Check for salt and seasoning. Adjust if required.
Switch off gas, and garnish with chopped coriander leaves and serve with more tomato sauce and green chilli sauce.
