Mushroom Manchurian Recipe
Mushroom Manchurian is one of the popular Indo Chinese starter recipes. Hubby is a great fan of fried rice and any type of manchurian too and his staple order in restaurants is egg fried rice with any dry gobi recipe. Mittu has not yet developed her taste for manchurians so always give the deep fried ones before adding it to the sauce.

You can make manchurian either gravy / semi dry(saucy) or dry version, I have made it saucy great to go with fried rice.I love manchurian as a side dish for fried rice but not as a starter as I dont have the habit of having starters / soups just dive straight into the main dishes :)

I have a love-hate relationship with mushrooms in the recent days.....But still whenever I see white clean fresh mushrooms in pazhamudhir I cannot resist, I end up buying a pack as its rich in nutrients and a good source of vitamins too and helps to reduce blood cholesterol levels....So try to include mushrooms as a part of your weekly meal at least.
