Noticed that some folks have complained about the use of Indian spices.While this recipe is not authentically Chinese, it`s certainly tasty.Chinese cooking`s a balance of opposites...sweet & sour,hot & cold,plain & spicy-the priciples of Taoism!The main types are Guangzhou,Sichuan,Beijing & Shanghai.Out of that,Sichuan cooking is heavily influenced by Indian spices & Indian cooking techniques brought back by Buddhist traders.That includes coriander (called Chinese parsley) & turmeric (roots).Most Indian restaurants use Indian spices for their Oriental food so as to appeal to locals.I live in England now & none of the Chinese run restaurants even serve something called `chicken manchurian`.But it`s availible in Indian restaurants in England .Anyway Uma Devi,great dish!

This recipe was delicious! I would agree with the others to not add any coriander, as I think it lent this recipe an underlying "off" taste. Other than that, it was delicious! Thank you!

Turned out very well. First tried this in a small place in toronto and loved it ever since. To Sal, chinese and indian culture mixed a bit with the hakka people a few hundred years ago, so this is a traditional type dish from then. Chinese with an indian influence, some ingredients added, some dropped, but the end result is delicious!

Everyone is asking about Tumeric and Corainder.... If you know anything about Manchurian Chicken it is an Indian-Chinese Recipe from an area where they had both spices (indian and chinese) available. It is called Hakka cuisine! It is not a chinese only dish.

This does not taste like Chicken Manchurian at all. And this doesnt even have a chinese look & flavour. But i should admit that it definitely is a good chicken fry - Indian style!

Brilliant recipe. Have tried couple of other receipes in the last few years but this is the one that gave the real taste of Chicken Manchurian that I have known from good chinese restaurants in Bangalore. Children also liked it very much. I added turmeric but not the coriander powder. It turned out sooooo good!

Hi, i tried this it came deliciously. i am gonna try it again. Every one have commented for turmeric powder but ,to say that is the medicine to be added for all the non vegeterian food mainly for chicken and fish.

I`m presuming it has coriander and turmeric in it because altho the dish originated as a Chinese dish, this particular version of Chicken Manchurian is an indian=chinese adaptation. It`s actually a fusion dish which is more popular at indian-chinese restaurants than it is in China, quite frankly. I hope that helps with the confusion. It`s a good dish tho. i`m just making it tonite!
