Chicken Manchurian (Gravy)

  Chicken Manchurian is an Indo-Chiness recipe.  Before this, I  Have shared four Indo-Chiness recipes: Chilli fish, Fish Manchurian, Chill Chicken & Fried Rice and  Chilli Soya Chunks. Chicken Manchurian is my all time favourite. My daughter also like it very much. So quite often I cook Chicken Manchurian at home.
     Chicken Manchurian is a very popular Indo-Chiness recipe. Chicken pieces are cooked with manchurian sauces and I basically  serve this with Fried Rice. Chicken Manchurian can be of many versions.  Dry Chicken Manchurian can be served as a starter or as a side dish. Here I am sharing Gravy version of Chicken Manchurian, which can be served as a side dish with Fried Rice. Here I am sharing a very simple and home style version.
