Vegetable Manchurian Dry/Gravy is a very delicious and mouth-watering recipe to enjoy the vegetables. Dry Veg Manchurian can be used as an appetizer/snack while the manchurian gravy can be served with naan / chapathi or rice. Vegetables can be added as per choice along with maida and corn starch. Make sure that you don’t add excess water as vegetables leave some moisture, just sprinkle water until the mixture begins to hold its shape. If you notice the manchurian balls disintegrating in the oil, then you can add additional maida / all purpose flour and it will bind everything together.Deep fry them over a medium heat
