Notes:

  • alternatively, you can add water first, get to a boil and then add cornstarch. this would make the paste smooth.
  • adjust chili sauce and soy sauce according to your taste. you may also add slit green chilies if you like it spicy.
  • you can also add finely chopped beans, cauliflowers, and capsicum while preparing veg balls. this would make it more crispy and tasty.
  • for more rich flavor and taste, use maggie hot and sweet sauce. this will enhance the color of veg Manchurian gravy.
