Prawns Manchurian -Indo Chinese Cuisine

The word 'Manchurian' itself waters many of our mouths,whether its the gobi manchurian, chicken manchurian or any other variety form.Iam also a big fan of manchurian and same with my family.Kids eat slightly more that day .Very familiar Indo-Chinese appetizer and an important dish in any party.But friends,yesterday I didnot have chicken or cauliflower at home and I badly wished to try it out.The prawns were ready at hand and so innovated with this recipe.I used the prawns with tail on.So,here comes the prawns manchurian.This also tastes equally good and yummy !!

to marinate
 prawns -1.2lb (I used deveined,tail on prawns)
wheat flour -4tsp
pepper powder -1 tsp
corn flour -2tsp
chilly powder -1/2 tsp
pepper powder 1/2tsp
lime juice 1tsp

For gravy
capsicum - 1 cube sized
onion -1 cube sized
tomato ketchup -4 tsp
soy sauce - 2 tsp
chilly powder -2 tsp
ginger garlic paste -2tsp
corn flour 2tsp
oil  5 tsp

  • Marinate the prawns with the mix and keep it in for 4 hours.
  • Heat oil in a skillet and shallow fry the prawns on medium heat,till light brown .Place it on paper towel.
  • Saute the ginger garlic paste till the raw smell vanishes,Add the chopped capsicum,onion and saute till transparent.
  • Saute for a minute and add all the sauces.
  • Mix the fried prawn pieces to it.
  • Mix the corn flour in 2tsp of water and add to the mix.
  • The gravy thickens,adjust salt and serve.

Servings  3 adults

-I prefer shallow frying,you can use the deep fry method if the quantity is more.

Hi Julie,
Came over from Cooking Varieties blog.. What nice dishes dishes you have here!

Northern States of Malaysia including Malacca, many local dishes have the Indian food influences - brought in by the Indian traders during the British rule.

However over centuries locally adapted and modified, so the taste differs.

TQ for sharing your recipes..
