7 Tips To Make Veg Balls For Restaurant-Style Veg Manchurian Recipe:
- The cabbage you are using to make the veg balls needs to be finely grated. You can use a grater or chopper to do the job seamlessly.
- Add the masalas to the grated cabbages in the right quantity. Do not add water to the mix to avoid batter-like consistency.
- Always add both maida and corn starch to make the veg balls crispy. Add maida and corn starch in 2:1 ratio.
- You may also use rice flour instead of cornflour.
- Do not make perfect round balls out of the cabbage mix. Make sure the veg balls have cracks that will help extract the flavours from the sauce.
- Always deep-fry the Manchurian balls when the oil is hot. Do not fry until the oil is super-hot. This will make the veg balls soggy.
- Fry the veg balls twice to get the perfect crisp.

Once the veg balls are fried, make a spicy gravy with garlic, ginger, onion, green chillies, capsicum, black pepper, soya sauce, chilli sauce, tomato ketchup and cornflour slurry. Add the veg balls to the gravy and mix. If you like dry veg Manchurian, then make less amount of gravy and cook the veg balls in it till the dish turns dry.
