The moment you think of Manchurian, it is ingredients like baby corn, cabbage, capsicum and cauliflower that immediately come to mind. Now, we present you with an off-beat but irresistible Corn Manchurian made with deep-fried balls of crushed sweet corn kernels, carrots and other usual flavour enhancers like ginger, garlic, etc. These deep-fried corn balls are dunked in the typical Manchurian sauce that is intensely flavoured with ginger, green chillies, soy sauce, chilli garlic sauce and other ingredients. While the Corn Manchurian offers the typical flavour punch associated with all Manchurians, what will please you the most is the texture of the corn balls, which are crisp outside and super soft, mildly sweet inside. Enjoy the holistic experience, slowly taking in the aroma, flavour and texture of each mouthful.
