Chicken Manchurian


Chicken Manchurian is a classic and famous chinese dish. It comprises of marinated and fried chicken pieces cooked in a spicy sauce. It is really a tasty and easy to cook dish. If you are in a hurry then chicken manchurian is just the right dish to cook!

I served this delectable dish with egg fried rice (recipe already shared!) but you can easily serve with plain boiled rice. Can it get easier than that?!

So here is a very simple version of chicken manchurian whichย does not involve a lot of ingredients but its going to make your taste buds really happy ๐Ÿ™‚



For chicken:

Chicken boneless bite size (I used mixed leg, thigh and breast meatย of half a chicken)

Sugar 1 tsp

Salt 1 tsp

Corn flour 2 tbs

Cooking oil 1 tbs

Marinate the chicken with the above ingredients and leave for half an hour.

For Gravy:

Chicken stock (yakhni) 1 1/2 cup

Cooking oil 1/2 cup

Garlic past 1 tsp

Tomato ketchupย  1/2 cup

Sugar 1 tbs

Salt 1/2 tsp

Red chilli powder 1/2 ย tsp

Green chillies chopped 2


  1. Shallow fry marinated chicken pieces in batches so that they dont stick with each other.ย  Fry and leave on kitchen paper to absorb extra oil.
  2. Take a bowl and mixย 1 ย cup chicken stock, ketchup, sugar, salt and red chilli powder ย while chicken is being fried and leave aside.
  3. Heat up oil and saute galic paste. Put fried chicken pieces, chopped green chillies and 1/2 cup chicken stock and cook for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Now add the sauce mixed earlier. Bring to a boil and turn off the heat.

Yummy Chicken Manchurian is ready!
