Soya Manchurian (Indo- Chinese )

Soya chunks,the vegetarians perfect meat is a protein rich food and there are a wide variety of recipes associated with it.We usually are not big fans of soya chunks but there are a few recipes which I have tried and everyone just devoured it blindly;one such recipe was the soya cutlets which I had posted earlier and this is another recipe which we could enjoy the last bite of it.Though there is one more such recipe which I will be posting soon.I know,many of u might be tempted by now..but please do give this a try and you will always make this.It tastes similar to the chicken manchurian and a perfect sneaker for kids who are after chicken like mine:-)

This is an awesome recipe. love the fact that you used wheat flour instead of APF for marination... made it even healthier... It looks great with those sesame seeds on top.
