Eggplant Manchurian/Indo Chinese Style Eggplant Manchurian

Manchurian is an excellent starter or side dish to have with fried rice or with a bowl of cooked rice. I have been dishing out many varieties of manchurian and one of my recent trial is with Eggplants. I followed the same cooking way as much as we do with chicken or else vegetables. Eggplant manchurian makes an excellent starter to start a party with, i have made a dry version if you want a saucy style of manchurian you can still dish this eggplant manchurian as much as gravy style dish. Trust me this Eggplant manchurian is definitely a delicacy which is a must to try at home. And this is just prefect to dish out in less than 30 minutes. Its a restaurant style vegan manchurian which is a must to try. And this dish calls for easily available ingredients which is quite easy to find in your pantry.
