Egg Manchurian Dry/how to make Egg Manchurian Recipe


Manchurian doesnt need any introduction, this Indo chinese foods are prepared usually with a vegetable or a meat. Marinated meat or veggies deep fried then sauteed with onions, bellpeppers along with a mixture of sauces makes this wonderful appetizier or side dish. Manchurians goes awesome with fried rice or else with a bowl of hot piping rasam rice.

Egg Manchurian is an another delicious recipe made by steaming the eggs and then deep frying them, the added sauces at the end nicely coats with the fried eggs and gives nice taste and sourness to the recipe .We can make it as a dry version or as a semi gravy type, egg Manchurian dry goes excellent with rice whereas gravy pairs with naan, roti and also with fried rice.

Where Gobi Manchurian recipes are rocking the Chinese menu cards I am here with a different type of Manchurian named as Egg Manchurian, unlike Gobi Manchurian where cauliflower is directly put into the oil in this Egg Manchurian we will boil the egg in a different manner which makes this a unique recipe.

If you want the recipe to be dry then we can add the fried eggs and mix with the sauces and turn off the heat after a couple of minutes, but if you want little gravy then dissolve corn starch in water and add it to the pan. once it thickens up a bit add the fried eggs and cook for another 2 minutes.Finally add required salt, some pepper and garnish with chopped spring Onions. 

That’s it our egg Manchurian is ready to be served with naan, fried rice and roti.


  • If your soy sauce is very strong you can dilute the sauce (use half the quantity of sauce mentioned) and add it to the recipe
  • Be careful while adding sat because all the sauces which we have added contains lot of salt in it.
  • You can use this steamed eggs for making other recipes like egg curry and egg gravy.
    In restaurants they add cubed onions and bell peppers, I have finely chopped them to add nice smooth texture
