Noodles (Maggi) Manchurian

A unique and fusion recipe made with the famous Maggi noodle kofta balls with Manchurian sauce. It is an ideal alternative to the popular Manchurian cabbage or vegetable recipe with the added flavor of the Maggi taster. You can easily prepare it as party appetiser and surprise your guests with the extra taste.

I am a big fan of Manchurian recipes or in general I love all Indo Chinese recipes. Personally, I like the combination of fried rice with manchurian or chili gravy. I try to make it unique and I am not using the same base as the gobi or the paneer. Only the cauliflower or cheese one can be monotonous so I am looking for other options. The noodles or cabbage-based are my other favorites, especially when the Maggi Taster is added. added to prepare the Manchurian sauce. In addition, the prepared Maggi pasta balls can also be served as a simple snack ignoring the sauce.

Besides, I would like to add other tips, suggestions and variations to the maggi manchurian recipe. Firstly, manchurian noodles are a common Indo Chinese recipe. However, Taste Maker's maggi noodles are a fusion recipe. So if you don't like the taste maker, you can skip it altogether. Secondly, you can make the same recipe with or without gravy. Personally I like it with a lot of sauce so I made the cornstarch based sauce. You can ignore it if you like it dry. Finally, the recipe can also be prepared as a chili variation with lots of sliced ​​green chili with the sauce.
