Chicken Manchurian

Hello Everyone and I wish you all Happy Monday.Hope you all had a awesome weekend!.Today's special is an Indo-Chinese-Chicken Manchurian which specially adapted from my fav fellow blogger the LOVE2COOK.Her inspiring dishes is remind my mum's cooking:(

I cooked Manchurian dishes before but not certainly with chicken.I made it with a small change,I less the sweet soy sauce and add some chilli paste to it for spicy flavor,rather than that I just stick to her original recipe.The chicken coated with a batter and then deep fried giving it a very soft texture.Overall its a sizzling and succulent dish.Thank you for the awesome recipe Sis.
