Chicken Manchurian Recipe

Chicken Manchurian is an another delicious recipe made with boneless chicken pieces coated in a seasoned batter and then deep frying them, the added sauces at the end nicely coats with the fried chicken and gives nice taste and sourness to the recipe .We can make it dry or can also be easily transformed into semi gravy type by adding corn flour mixture to it, Chicken Manchurian dry goes excellent with rice whereas gravy pairs with naan, roti and also with fried rice.
I have finely chopped the onions to coat the pieces well , you can also cut them into cubes if you prefer.
