Chicken Manchurian, one of the most common recipe you will find in Chinese restaurants. I know few people who order this dish whenever they visit any Chinese restros without even looking at the menu card. I think if you already know to prepare chili chicken then preparing chicken Manchurian at home is not a big deal. It’s quite similar to chili chicken but tastes hell lot different.
