Tip 1: To save time you can also use a 40g packet Fajita seasoning mix with 2 tablespoons oil instead of making your own marinade.
Tip 2: Tortillas can be torn and barbecued for quick crisps to serve with dip
Tip 3: Replace the chicken with two thickly sliced large eggplants for a vegetarian alternative.
1) Add all the above marination ingredients to a bowl and mix them well, add the diced chicken boneless breast cubes to this marinate and refrigerate for 15 minutes
in a freezer.
2) Add 1/2 Cup of all purpose flour on a plate and retrieve the bowl of marinated chicken from the freezer and coat each chicken piece with all purpose flour and deep fry the chicken manchurian at a medium flame for 3-4 minutes and extract them when they are 75% cooked.
3) Raise the flame of the kadai/vessel which contains the oil to very high and after a minute when the oil is very hot now add the 75% cooked chicken from Step 2), now the chicken manchurian will get a crisp coating at the top and from the inside it will be succulent.
4) Grab a skillet and put the flame to high, add the oil mentioned in the ingredients above, add spring onions, garlic cloves and ginger finely chopped, green chilies, water / chicken stock, salt, sugar, all other ingredients mentioned above, finally reduce the flame to low and add the corn flour mixed with water to thicken the sauce, it will thicken in a minute of cooking time.
5) Drop the cooked chicken manchurian pieces from Step 3) in the skillet with this amazing succulent chicken manchurian sauce, but before you do that make sure you have put off the flame, otherwise the chicken manchurian which is crisp will become soggy and soft/tender from the outside too.
6) Finally, garnish with fresh spring onion stalks/greens finely chopped and serve hot with chineese fried rice / noodles, enjoy with family and friends 🙂
