Chicken boneless bite size (I used mixed leg, thigh and breast meat 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.
Chicken stock (yakhni) 1 1/2 cup
Cooking oil 1/2 cup
Garlic past 1 tsp
Tomato ketchup 1/2 cup
Sugar 1 tbs
Salt 1/2 tsp
Red chilli powder 1/2 tsp
Green chillies chopped 2
- Shallow fry marinated chicken pieces in batches so that they dont stick with each other. Fry and leave on kitchen paper to absorb extra oil.
- Take a bowl and mix 1 cup chicken stock, ketchup, sugar, salt and red chilli powder while chicken is being fried and leave aside.
- 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.
- Now add the sauce mixed earlier. Bring to a boil and turn off the heat.
Yummy Chicken Manchurian is ready!
