Whenever I prepare Chinese Veg Fried Rice or Schezwan Rice, I like to prepare Cauliflower Manchurian as its side dish. I get time to fry the Cauliflower but not to make the gravy. I serve them dry. I wanted something easy and fast to prepare that goes well with Fried Rice. My search ended when I saw this recipe in Tarla Dalal’s Recipe. This is easy to prepare; yet tasty and different.
Mixed Vegetables 1 cup (Baby Corn, Carrots, Beans, Cauliflower)
Capsicum ¼ cup
Soya Sauce 1 tbsp
Chilli Sauce 1 tbsp
Vinegar 1 tsp
Corn Flour 1 tbsp
Finely chopped Ginger and Garlic 1 tsp each
Dried Red Chillies 2
Pepper ½ tsp or to taste
Spring Onions Few
Chop Vegetables and Capsicum into medium pieces. Chop Spring Onions into fine pieces.
Cook Vegetables for one whistle in a Pressure Cooker.
Heat Oil in a Pan. When hot, add Spring Onions, chopped Ginger and Garlic. Saute till they turn slightly brown.
Add Capsicum and fry for a while. Now add the cooked Vegetables, all the Sauces & Vinegar, Pepper and Salt. Mix well.
Mix Cornflour in ½ cup of Water and stir well. Add this mixture to the gravy and stir well. Cook till done.
Serve with Chinese Fried Rice or Schezwan Fried Rice.
Notes: I have used light Soya Sauce. Use thick one to get good color.
