Considering its popularity, anybody who is a fan of Oriental food, would definitely have had Chicken Manchurian multiple times in their lives! We love both versions – the dry version, which can be eaten as a starter as well as the gravy version, which is best enjoyed with some Egg Fried Rice or Hakka Noodles. If you want a vegetarian option, Gobhi Manchurian is our best bet!
