BM #104 Day 13 - 

We begin the third week of this Mega Marathon. This week it is all about snacks as per our choice. So I chose to post some family favorites.

My kids love Manchurian and baby corn. For many years I found sourcing baby corn very difficult until one of my friends told me that the canned versions were always available. I was skeptical about the canned ones but I tried it and my kids were delighted to enjoy these baby corns.

Ingredients - 

For the Baby Corn - 
Baby Corn chopped into 1 inch pieces 3-4 cups (I used 2 cans)
Corn Flour 3 Tbsp
Salt, Pepper as needed

Cooking Oil to deep fry 
For the Manchurian Sauce - 
Sesame Oil 1 Tbsp
Ginger-Garlic-Green Chili paste 2 tsp
Spring onion, finely chopped 2 Tbsp
Onion, cubed 1/2 cup
Bell Peppers cubed 1/2 cup (I skipped this time)
Soy Sauce 2 Tbsp
Chili Garlic Sauce 2 Tbsp
Tomato Ketchup 1 Tbsp
Cornstarch 1 Tbsp mixed with 1/4 cup of water
Salt as needed

Method Of Preparation -
To Prepare the baby corn dumplings - 

In a mixing bowl, add the corn flour, salt and pepper. Sprinkle water as needed to make a thin batter.

Add in the chopped baby corn pieces into the batter.

Let it sit for 10 minutes. [This step ensures that the batter gets absorbed by the baby corn making them crunchy upon frying].

Heat oil and fry the above the battered baby corn in batches until golden brown. Drain excess oil on paper towels.

To Prepare the Manchurian Sauce -
In a heated pan add sesame oil. Saute ginger-garlic-green chili paste. 

Then saute onions and spring onions.

Add in the soy sauce, tomato ketchup, chili garlic sauce. Sprinkle adequate salt.

Mix cornstarch in water to make a thin paste and pour it into the mixture and let the sauce simmer. Adjust the flavor as needed. 

Dunk in the dumplings in the sauce just before serving, garnish with spring onions and enjoy!
