Chicken Manchurian (Microwave version)


Ask me my favourite cuisine & without missing my beat, I would say its"Chinese". So, what I had been my fav all these years was "Indo-chinese" which are immensely popular with indians. Indo chinese is a combination of chinese spices in indian cooking.

Chicken manchurian served best with fried rice & naan. Microwave version makes this dish easy, healthy & less time consuming toooo.

Ingredients :
  1. Boneless chicken - 350 gms
  2. Oil - 2 tbsp
  3. Garlic (finely chopped) - 5 pods
  4. Ginger (finely chopped) - 2 inch pc
  5. Onion - 1 no
  6. Green chilly - 4 nos
  7. Tomato sauce - 1/2 tbsp
  8. Soy sauce - 2 tbsp
  9. Black pepper - 1 tsp
  10. White vinegar - 1 1/2 tsp
  11. Ajinomoto - 1/2 tsp
  12. Cornflour - 3 tsp
  13. Water - 3 tbsp
  14. Spring onions
  15. Corriander leaves
  16. Salt to taste


Method :

  • In a microwave proof dish, combine chicken, oil, finely chopped ginger, garlic, onion, green chillies & salt & microwave high for 10 mins.

  • Remove & add tomato sauce, soy sauce, black pepper, white vinegar, ajinimoto and mix it - Microwave high for 5 more mins.

  • Meanwhile dissolve cornflour with water. Add them into the chicken after 5 mins & microwave it for further 2 mins.


Garnish it with spring onions & corriander leaves.
