This month for Shhhhh Cooking Secretly Challenge,a monthly challenged spear headed by Priya, Shoba of Anubhavati gave me bread and apples. I wanted to do a dessert with apples but then,as you know, the plan got changed.

Last week,I realized it was almost time to post the dish and I had both apples and bread at home. Yet somehow, I kept putting off the plans to cook with theses!

One day, I went to the nearby bakery to get some stuffs and noticed some packets on the counter. A teen was picking up a couple of those and I was curious to know what it was. The shop assistant told me it was bread Manchurian and it was INR 20 per pack! I felt that it was over priced as it had just 4-5 pieces inside the pack and it was bright that I knew artificial colors were added!


Anyways,the idea sounded yum and here I am with the Bread Manchurian – my version, for this challenge…

I used:

Bread slices- 10, cubed
Capsicum-1,small ,chopped
Baby corn -1 piece, thinly sliced and parboiled
Onion-1,thinly sliced
Finely chopped ginger and garlic- 1 teaspoon
Soy sauce- 1 teaspoon
Tomato chili sauce- 2 teaspoons
Red chili powder- 1/2 teaspoon
Salt to taste
Oil-2 teaspoons
Coriander leaves to garnish

For the batter:

Corn flour – 1/2 cup
Soy sauce- 1 teaspoon
Ginger garlic paste- 1 teaspoon
Red chili powder- 1 teaspoon
Salt to taste

Take the ingredients for the batter in a blow.Add water little by little and make a batter of coating consistency.Drop the bread cubes in it and coat it with the batter. Gently fry them in hot oil till golden brown.Drain and keep aside. Repeat till all the bread cubes are used up.

Heat oil in a pan and add the onion, ginger and garlic.Saute till the onion is soft. Add the baby corn and capsicum and cool for a few minutes. Add the soy sauce and mix well.

Next add the tomato chili sauce, red chili powder and salt.Add a little water to moisten the mixture and cook for 2 minutes.Add the fried bread and toss gently so that the sauce coats the bread cubes.

Serve hot garnished with coriander leaves.

It is a tasty snack and I am sure the kids will love it…
