Cabbage Manchurian

Recipe Description:

Much of ‘Desi-Chinese’ cuisine involves spicing up Chinese dishes with add-ons like garam masala or curry powder. Mumbai’s famous ‘Manchurian’ is arguably a much more bold and eclectic fusion food, focusing on fresh Indian aromatics (green chilli, ginger and garlic) while leaving out the usual dried spices, resulting in an umami-rich soy-based sauce infused with vibrant Indian aromas. No dish travels far in India if it doesn’t cater to vegetarians; these grated vegetable fritters are a popular solution, but we’ve gone further by serving them on top of Hakka noodles for a fun, Desi-Chinese spin on spaghetti and meatballs.
