Mushroom manchurian is my favorite among mushroom starters Indian chinese style. Manchurian is India’s most loved Indo Chinese dish and no Indian chinese meal is ever complete without it, bet it a wet or dry manchurian.

I’m trying my best to post a few step by step pictures especially keeping beginner cooks in mind. Mushroom machurian dry recipe is simple to make with minimal preparation and minimal ingredients. Its the deep frying that is slightly labour intensive but worth the effort keeping in mind the end result. The crust of the deep fried mushroom balls is crisp while the interior is soft on bite.
Recipe for mushroom manchurian dry is prepared on the same lines as other manchurian dishes. You can add green capsicum since it adds color, crunch and flavor. Ensure that you do not let the mushrooms sit in the batter for more than a few seconds as it tends to leave a lot of water. The batter has to be slightly thick so that it coats the mushrooms well before deep frying them in hot oil. The deep fried mushroom balls should not be allowed to sit too long once they are drained off the hot oil as they tend to become soggy.
These deep fried mushroom balls are tossed in an exotic sauce that comprises of spring onion whites, sugar, soya sauce, green chili sauce and tomato sauce. It is the sauce which gives the manchurian all its exquisite robust flavor. Finish off with a garnish of spring onion greens and fresh coriander and you have one of the best mushroom manchurian restaurant style on hand.
