well, the manchurian recipe can be made in many different forms. it can be made as either a gravy version or as dry variant. moreover, it can be made with gobi, paneer, mushroom and choice meat of variables. in this recipe post, i have used the mixed vegetable option and i have made deep-fried balls with it. with respect to texture and appearance, it would be very similar to a meat option. in addition to it, i would also like to mention my other variant. i have posted another variation known as cabbage manchurian, where the manchurian balls are made just with cabbage grate. some may argue that both recipes are same, but i feel the other way. even though both are made with vegetables, each has its own proportion and eventually its taste. hence i would recommend giving a try to both the recipes.

furthermore, i would like to highlight to some more tips, variations and suggestions for a perfect manchurian gravy recipe. firstly, the recipe can be made as both gravy and also as dry variant. it can be made based on the serving type. you may want to skip the cornflour slurry step to make dry version. secondly, i have added cornflour while making the vegetable balls to make it crispy. well as an alternative you can use rice flour but may not get the same texture and result. lastly, with respect to vegetables, it is completely open-ended and you can add your choice of vegetable. having said that, you need to chop those finely so that it can bind it together.
