Chicken Manchurian Recipe
Lots of people change Chinese food by taking more spices, but I don’t like this. Though I also add some chilies, my Chicken Manchurian Recipe in Urdu gives a real Chinese taste as I use soya sauce and Ajinomoto. I love to have it with plain rice, but the restaurants serve it with egg fried rice. I fry and cook this Recipe in Aliz Olive Oil to have more benefits. From chicken to sauces, everything is healthy, including aliz olive oil. The cutting is also an important part of this recipe as you need to cut the chicken into small cubes. Large chicken pieces will change the real essence of Manchurian.

My favorite Chinese restaurant also serves the best Chicken Manchurian Recipe in a typical chines way but a little spicy too. There are some restaurants that add too much cornflour to thicken the gravy but that is not fair as the taste of flour overcomes other flavors and it is not that healthy. By using every ingredient in a proportion, you will have super tasty chicken Manchurian. I eat it with rice and love to have the cold drink. I also enjoy the beautiful landscape of my favorite restaurant because it is so refreshing.
