Soya Chunk Manchurian

I always saw this recipe on the packet of Nutrella. I again saw this recipe in one of the blogs Faiz Ali Khan's blog.. And I had some soya chunks left at home..A sudden guest arrived on Sunday and I had nothing left at home except one capsicum in the fridge. Hence, I thought this is the best time to utilise the soy chunks left at home.. I did variation to it to increase the size of Manchurian balls.

Ingredients :
2 cups soy chunks
1 small capsicum cut into small size
1 onion cut into small size
1 green chili slit
2 tbsp cornflour
1 tbsp ginger garlic paste
1 tsp chili garlic paste
1 tbsp tomato sauce
1 tsp soy sauce
salt to taste
1 beaten egg as binder(optional)

Method to cook :
Heat water in a pan and drop in the balls. Cook till soy chunks are soft.
Remove hot boiling water and run through cold water.
Mash the soya chunks well with hand. Add salt, chili garlic sauce, cornflour and ginger garlic paste.
Heat oil in a kadai. Once oil is hot, take lemon size ball of soy chunk mix made above and slide into hot oil.
You can also try shallow frying.
Once, they are done, take out on a tissue paper to soak excess water.
Heat 1 tsp oil in another pan and cook onion till pink. Add capsicum at this stage and cook till capsicum is tender. Add slit green chili,
tomato kechtup and fried soy balls.
Add a little salt for seasoning . Add soy sauce and toss gently.
Serve hot.
