Chicken Manchurian recipe

Chicken Manchurian recipe:

Chicken Manchurian is one of my favorite dishes and it is easy to cook at home.Chicken Manchurian is believed to be originated from the Chinese immigrants settled in different parts of Kolkata in India.I really like the garlicky flavor in this gravy and it is a refreshing change from our every day curry :) .This chicken Manchurian goes really well with fried rice(For fried rice recipe click here)  or any type of noodles .For the gravy I have used chicken stock but if you do not have chicken stock stored at your home use plain water and it should be alright.Hopefully you will like this recipe as much as I do ,here is the full recipe:
