Broccoli Manchurian

Recipe For Dry Broccoli Manchurian


Batch - 1

  • Broccoli - 1 lb of florets
  • All purpose flour-2 tbsp
  • Corn flour - 1.5 cups ( or as needed)
  • Chilly powder -1 tbsp
  • Pepper powder - 1 tsp
  • Salt - 1 tsp
  • Water- 1 1/2 cup (or as needed to make a thick batter)

Batch - 2

  • Garlic - 3-4 cloves (finely chopped)
  • Ginger - 1"(finely chopped)
  • Tomato sauce - 3 tbsp
  • Chilly sauce - 1-2 tbsp
  • Soy sauce - 3 tbsp
  • Ajinomoto - 1 tsp (optional)
  • Oil - 2 tbsp


  1. Mix all the ingredients from batch-1 except broccoli florets to form a thick batter (similar to bajji batter). Add water little at the time while making the paste. This will prevent the formation of lumps.
  2. Dip the florets in the batter to coat it completely and deep fry in oil. Drain excess oil on the paper towel.
  3. Heat some oil in a non stick pan. Saute the finely chopped ginger and garlic. (Optionally you can also saute sliced onions, coloured peppers and other veggies with this).
  4. Add the tomato sauce, chilli sauce, soy sauce, ajinomoto and mix everything.
  5. Finally toss the fried broccoli florets with the sauce.
  6. Garnish with finely chopped green onions and serve.

Serving Suggestion


  • If you plan to make the dish ahead of time, toss the fried broccoli florets with the sauce in the last. This will prevent it from becoming soggy.
