Chicken Manchurian Easy Recipe

chicken manchurian

I had my first Chicken Manchurian in a Chinese restaurant in UAE (United Arab Emirates). To me it felt like this dish will consume so much time to be prepared. The blend of spices and the texture of the chicken made me think so, but I was wrong!

Chicken Manchurian is an easy dish to make. I couldn’t believe it when I first saw a Chef preparing it on TV.

Chicken Manchurian.

Something else caught my attention, all the Chefs who prepared Chicken Manchurian, were either Indians or Pakistanis! I haven’t seen a Chinese Chef making Chicken Manchurian, yet!

I tried to get on google.com and find out the origin of this dish. I got more confused and found no straight answer, so my GUESS is, originally Chicken Manchurian is a Chinese dish which later got modified to match Indian cuisine, so it’s kind of Indo-Chinese mix.

I am done researching, and to be honest it doesn’t really matter to me, I just want to cook Chicken Manchurian and eat it.

      I know, many didn’t hear about it, but it is popular in India, how strange :)… Thanks for stopping by dear!

  7. Oh my gosh! This sounds (and looks) amazing, Muna! I could totally go for this for dinner tonight! 🙂

  8. I love this dish! Not only does it look beautiful, the flavors are perfect 🙂

  9. That looks absolutely delicious. It truly is a cross between Indian and Chinese since this recipe starts off with garlic, ginger and dried chilies but then soy sauce is added later instead of spices. So cool.
