For Preparation of the gravy:

  • Add required amount of water depending upon the requirement of the gravy. I have added 1.5 cups of water. Allow it to boil for 3-4 minutes. Simultaneously dissolve cornflour powder in 1/4 cup of water and stir well. Add this cornflour mixture to the boiling gravy and the gravy will attain a suitable consistency. Turn of the flame and keep the gravy aside.
  • Add the manchurian balls just before serving.




VEGETABLE FRIED RICE


INGREDIENTS :


Basmathi Rice2 cups
Carrot 1/4 cup chopped finely
Green PeasHandful
Green Chillies2 Slit length wise
Onions1/2 cup
Freshly grated Ginger1 tsp
Garlic chopped finely1 tsp
SOya Sauce2 tsp
Freshly ground pepper1/2 tsp
SaltTo Taste




DIRECTIONS:

Wash the rice ,drain all the water & keep it aside for 20-30 minutes.
In a large nonstick pan , add twice the amount of water for rice and allow it to boil. Add a pinch of salt , 1 tsp of Olive Oil & rice. Once the water in the rice evaporates to the level just above rice, lower flame completely ,cover the pan with lid & cook for 5-7 minutes. Now turn of the flame and allow the rice to cool down.
You will find rice cooked so beautifully ,each grain separated. I have learnt this trick of cooking rice from Vah re Vah.
Heat oil in a pan ,add all the chopped vegetables along with green chillies ,ginger & garlic and saute them for 3-4 minutes. Add the required Salt & pepper to it & saute for 1 more min.
Add the cooked rice & soya sauce and mix well. Cook the fried rice for about 2 minutes and serve hot.


Kitchen Notes :
I have used Red onions in this preparation of veg ball manchurian.. just because I didnt have Sping Onions in stock.
Soya sauce itself contains a bit of salt .So we need to be careful with salt addition.




Cheers
