My son Prithvi loves baby corn manchurian a lot just like me :). I started to prepare baby corn manchurian,but before I could finish frying the whole pieces, 3/4 th of the fried ones got over - mostly eaten by my hubby and son. I had already chopped in onions and other things for making manchurian and ended up doing bread manchurian. I got lot of appreciation by my son, which is very rare( though I try out so many things). He just said "I love bread manchurian".. which made me just smile :)
Bread slice - 5
Corn flour - 4 tbsp
All purpose flour/maida - 2 1/2 tbsp
Rice flour - 1 tbsp
Onion - 1 medium chopped fine
Ginger garlic paste - 1 tbsp
Garlic - 3 pods ( cut into small pieces)
Ajjinamotto - a pinch ( optional)
Kashmiri chilli powder - 1 1/2 tbsp
Soy sauce - 1 1/2 tbsp
Tomato sauce - 1 tbsp
Red chilli sauce/tomato chilli sauce - 1 tbsp
Green onions - 3 tbsp chopped fine Or
cilantro/coriander leaves - few chopped
Salt as needed
Oil for frying
Cut each bread slice into cubes( may be around 9)... keep it aside. If the bread slices are too moist as we get here... then keep them out of the pack , may be layering on a plate to dry out for sometime.
In a mixing bowl add corn flour, maida, rice flour, little salt, chilli powder(1/2 tbsp) and mix well ... add very little water to make a thick batter in a dropping consistency .... heat oil for deep frying in a kadai /frying pan ....add the bread cubes in small batches ... dip well in the batter and drop them in hot oil ,fry till they are crisp ... remove and repeat for the remaining bread cubes and keep it aside.
Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a pan/kadai and add chopped onions ... fry till golden brown ...next add ginger garlic paste and saute for a minute....then add ajjinamotto and garlic pieces ( optional) and chopped green onions...saute for 3 - 4 minutes .... next add little salt, soy sauce, tomato sauce and red chilli sauce and saute once ... immediately add the fried bread cubes and mix lightly .... I did not have green onions so have garnished with cilantro leaves.
Will be on vacation from tomorrow. So posting a recipe before leaving. See you all next week. Have a great weekend :)
