Vegetable Manchurian Balls in Hot and Spicy Chilli Garlic Sauce is a classic recipe from the Indian Chinese Cuisine. The Vegetable balls are made from a combination of finely minced vegetables that are deep fried and served as a main course dish in a chilli garlic sauce.

I typically experiment with a variety of chilli sauces and at a recent party a friend of mine had brought this dish for potluck and was very similar to what I make. But she had used a combination of all the different kinds of chilli sauces and it was delicious.

I have tried to replicate the recipe with my memory on the recipe she had shared. You can also serve these Vegetable Manchurian Balls as an appetizer for parties with the chilli garlic sauce acting as a dip.

Serve the Vegetable Manchurian Balls in Chilli Garlic Sauce along with Vegetable Hakka Noodles or Chinese Vegetable Fried Rice.
