10 Facts About Chicken Manchurian, India’s Best Attempt At Chinese Food
India has surpassed China in one specific thing, preparing Chinese food.
And the crown jewel of India’s patriotic take on food from our volatile neighbours is definitely Chicken Manchurian.
Chicken Manchurian is there for you when you’re drunk, sober, broke or rich. It’s an adventure in your mouth, it tastes different at literally every place you eat it. It’s all the Ajinomoto and green onion of Chinese food coupled with the unnecessary masala and generic brown gravies of India.
Chicken Manchurian is inviting. It’s tender chunks drowned in some sort of goo that almost always turns into jelly after you put it in the fridge for half an hour. The chicken is first coated in a delicious batter and then dunked into the sauce.
And if you’re vegetarian…I dunno. What the hell do they put in there? Cauliflower? Potato? Whatever.
But whether it’s Chicken, Mushrooms or veggies, we all know that whatever finds its way into that shady sauce will taste absolutely delicious when it returns. A perfect way to spend an evening at home. Because if you can’t be with the one you love, be with Chicken Manchurian.
