  1. I made this today. I used oyster mushrooms which I just saluted with the Ingrients per your recipe without the maida and corn starch instead of deep frying. I’m not a big fan of deep frying or maida and corn starch. The rest of the recipe was followed to the letter. Had it with angel hair pasta. Was delicious. Thank you5 stars

    • thanks karyn. when i added this recipe, i did feel that the photos were not good enough. but then later i thought they were not bad also. thanks again for this encouragement.

  2. Finally, I’ve been learning to cook myself Indian cuisines and i know i still have a long way to go but your Manchurian recipe is wonderful.
    Easy & tasty.
    I hope you update more about Chicken & Mainstream vegetables.5 stars
