9.Throw in the fried fritters into this and mix well.Turn off the heat and sprinkle with the green onions before serving.
10.Serve with hot vegetable fried rice or as it is, as a starter.
1.To get the restaurant style manchurian you could add MSG(trade name-ajinomotto), a pinch. I don't buy MSG, since I'm not sure about the health problems it could cause.
2.You could replace the red chilli sauce with the green one, I used the former since I didn't have the later :-)
