Egg Manchurian Recipe

Written By Angela Steffi on Thursday, April 27, 2017 | 10:37:00 PM

Egg Manchurian is an another delicious recipe made by steaming the eggs and then deep frying them, the added sauces at the end nicely coats with the fried eggs and gives nice taste and sourness to the recipe .We can make it as a dry version or as a semi gravy type, egg Manchurian dry goes excellent with rice whereas gravy pairs with naan, roti and also with fried rice.
I have finely chopped the onions and capsicum to get nice texture , you can cut them into cubes if you prefer. Due to steaming process, the eggs will have more pores in it which absorbs more gravy inside, which can be followed for making many other recipes like egg gravy and egg curries.

Cooking Method


Step 1) Steaming eggs:
Break open 4 eggs into a bowl and add required salt, some pepper and mix well. Grease a pan with oil and transfer the egg mixture into that bowl and place it inside an Idli cooker (we can also use rice cooker without adding the cooker weight).
Steam it for 15-20 minutes .Run a knife through the edges and cut the steamed eggs into desired shape and keep it aside.



Step 2) Frying the Eggs:
In a mixing bowl add maida ,corn flour, chili powder ,add water and mix well to for a semi thick batter. Coat the cooked eggs and fry it in hot oil. Once they become crispy take it off from the oil and set aside.



Step 3) Onion & Capsicum:
Now in a pan heat oil and add finely chopped ginger, chopped garlic and saute it for a minute until the raw smell is gone.Then add chopped onions and cook for a minute until it turns translucent. Then add bell peppers / Capsicum and cook for a couple of minutes.


Step 4) Sauces for egg Manchurian:
Now its time to add the sauces - chilli sauce, tomato ketchup, Soy sauce and mix well. If you want the recipe to be dry then we can add the fried eggs and mix with the sauces and turn off the heat after a couple of minutes, but if you want little gravy then dissolve corn starch in water and add it to the pan. once it thickens up a bit add the fried eggs and cook for another 2 minutes.Finally add required salt, some pepper and garnish with chopped spring Onions. 





Egg-Manchurian

That's it our egg Manchurian is ready to be served with naan, fried rice and roti.

Notes:
  • If your soy sauce is very strong you can dilute the sauce (use half the quantity of sauce mentioned) and add it to the recipe
  • Be careful while adding sat because all the sauces which we have added contains lot of salt in it.
  • You can use this steamed eggs for making other recipes like egg curry and egg gravy.
  • In restaurants they add cubed onions and bell peppers, I have finely chopped them to add nice smooth texture
