Brinjal/Eggplant Manchurian


 


Brinjal Manchurian / Eggplant Manchurian


    Here is one of the best recipes i tried from Magic Oven. This Brinjal manchurian will make a great appetizer for dinner parties. Make sure to serve it hot and crispy.

Ingredients
  •  4 eggplants, peeled and cut in finger shape
  • 4 tbs garlics, chopped
  • 2 tbs ginger, chopped
  • 1 tbs chopped green chillies
  • 4 tbs chopped celery
  • 1 cup spring onions
  • 2 tbs soya sauce
  • 3 tbs tomato sauce
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • salt, as needed
  • 1 1/2 tbs oil
For the batter


  • 8 tbs cornflour
  • 8 tbs all purpose flour
  • salt, as needed


Directions

 Make a thick batter with flour, cornflour and salt  by adding little  water. Coat the brinjal pieces with this

batter and fry till golden brown (You can  double fry  to retain the crispness). and set aside.

  Heat oil in a pan. Saute ginger, garlics, green chillies and celery. Once sauteed, low the flame and add soya sauce, tomato sauce, sugar and salt. Saute for 2 minutes. Add 1/2 cup water and boil. When the gravy thickens add fried brinjal  pieces. Mix  everything well and fry for 5 more minutes. Garnish with spring onions.
Serve hot.

Dear Vrinda

This a very new dish for me. I love brinjal in its all form..Book marking it. I like that good use of garlic and ginger with Soya..
I liked your comment at my blog. Actually you can use any oil in place of mustard oil. But if the recipe specifies, to put a bit of raw mustard oil during the process, then only you need to use it.That too to get the flavour of the dish being enhance with the distinct taste of raw mustard oil.
Have a nice day

If you didn't say they were eggplants, I would probably take these chicken slices.
