Hubby and me are not big fans of Chinese, we say that often but after the wedding when I was in Bangalore 80% of the time we went out alone for dinner we had Chinese, in a place called Kim Lee, the service was good and fast and we loved the food. Then Beijing Bites opened 2 minutes away from home so we did have there too a couple of times. At home Chinese is made at least 2 times a month. But when asked we still say naa we don't like Chinese food that much.



Anyways Manchurian, sweet and sour is something I make often since it is quick. There may be fried rice or noodles, or just soup and bread along side. This goes to the AWED - Chinese Cuisine hosted by Dhivya of Culinary Bazaar



Ingredients

1 cup Baby Corn, I used frozen
1/2 onion , cut into 1 inch squares.
1/2 bell pepper, cut into 1 inch squares.
4-5 cloves garlic, crushed.
1 green chili, Chopped (optional)
2 spring onions, chopped with greens
2 tbsp tomato ketchup
1 tbsp soya sauce
1 tsp balsamic vinegar
1 tsp cornflour, dissolved in 1/2 cup water
1 tsp pepper
salt to taste

Method

  1. Heat oil in a saucepan, add the baby corn in batches and brown them on both sides and cook completely. Remove from pan and keep aside.
  2. Heat more oil in the same pan, add garlic, the onions and bell peppers, cook for 2 mins they should be crisp. Add the baby corn.
  3. Add Ketchup, soya sauce, vinegar and sherry. Cook for 1 min.
  4. Add the corn flour mixture, salt and pepper, bring it to a boil.
  5. Add the green onions. Mix well.
  6. Serve immediately
