Shrimp/Prawns Manchurian

My favorite dish right from childhood. I like it a lot especially when we cook in Jumbo size prawns/shrimp.


For Shrimp marination:-

Shrimp/prawns-2lbs(deviled and cleaned)
Ginger-garlic paste-3tspn
Soy Sauce-1/2 tsp
Chili sauce-1 tsp
SALT to taste

For making the sauce:-

Ginger-1/2 finely chopped
Garlic-4pods finely chopped
Green chilies-3 finely chopped
Spring Onions-1 bunch finally chopped
Soy sauce-1/4 tbspn
Chili sauce-1/2 tsp
Tomato sauce/ketchup-1 tbspn
Black pepper powder-1/2 tspn
Maida(mix 3tbspn of maida with 1/4 cup of water)
SALT to taste


1) Combine all the ingredients for the marination(except the oil) and set aside for 3hrs.
2) Heat the oil in a frying pan. Deep fry the shrimp,drain the excess oil in a tissue.
3) In another pan heat the oil and then add the chopped ginger,garlic and green chilies. Now add the green onion and saute for a min.
4) Add the soy sauce,chili sauce,tomato sauce/ketchup, pepper powder and SALT.
5) Add little water and bring it to boil. Add the fried shrimp and cook for few mins.
6) Then add the maida and water mixture,stirring that no lumps are formed.
7) Cook for few more mins until the mixture slightly thickens.

Enjoy the Manchurian...Serve hot with roti,naan,fried rice and noodles..

This can be done with Boneless chicken also.
