Babycorn Manchuria

If you are a fan of Indo Chinese fusion cuisine, you’ll love this appetizer recipe that is well loved by many us Indians. The Gobi Manchurian recipe I blogged last year was well received by many of you and I am quite certain that you will impress your family and guests with Baby Corn Manchurian too. :)

Baby Corn Manchurian Recipe

Prep & Cooking Time: 40 mts

Serves 4-5 persons

Cuisine: Indo-Chinese



15-16 baby corn, each cut diagonally into two

1 1/2 tbsps maida/all-purpose flour

1 tbsp cornflour

1 tsp rice flour (optional)

1 tsp ginger-garlic-green chilli paste

few tbsps water

salt to taste

For sauce:

1/4 cup spring onions, finely chopped,

1 capsicum, finely sliced

1/2 tbsp finely minced garlic

1/2 tsp finely minced ginger

1-2 finely chopped green chillis

1/2 tsp red chilli pwd (preferably Kashmiri)

1 tsp soya sauce

1 tsp chilli sauce

1 1/2 tsps vinegar

2 tbsps tomato sauce

1/2 tsp brown sugar (optional)

salt as required

1 1/2 tbsps sesame oil

1 tbsp finely chopped coriander leaves

1 Heat oil for deep frying in a heavy bottomed vessel.
2 In a bowl, combine maida, cornflour, rice flour, salt, ginger-garlic-green chilli paste and water to make a thick paste. Dip the washed and drained baby corns into the batter such that its well coated. Place each piece that is well coated with the batter into the hot oil. Reduce flame and deep fry till the baby corn is almost cooked. Increase the flame towards the end of the cooking process and fry the baby corn till it turns golden brown. Remove onto absorbent paper and keep aside.
3 Heat oil in a large wok and once the oil is piping hot, add the chopped garlic and stir fry for a few seconds. Add the green chillis and ginger and stir fry on high for a few seconds.
4 Add the whites of spring onions and stir fry on high for 3-4 mts, constantly tossing them. Add the sliced capsicum and stir fry for another 3 mts. They should retain their crunch.
5 Reduce to medium heat and add the brown sugar, soya sauce, tomato ketchup, chilli sauce and vinegar. Combine well and cook for 2 mts. Add 3 tbsps of water and cook for 2 mts.
6 Add the deep fried baby corn and combine. Toss on high flame for 1-2 mts. Turn off heat. Garnish with the chopped spring onion greens and coriander leaves.

    A small correction is needed in the description.
    You put in baby corn into the hot oil and it changes to gobi in the next sentence. :-)

    I tried this but when I fried baby corn in oil (after coating as mentioned), the batter formed as jelly, I mean the coat didn’t stick to baby corn..did I miss anything…and yeah, it always happens with me when ever I add corn flour to my dishes, not sure what goes wrong..

      Oil should be heated well! Plus you need to fry until they are golden brown…
