many ingredents are disappear what should have been included like spring onions peas green paper(shimla mirch) chillie sauce and ajinomoto 2nd thing is that how can we make the bolls of carrots and cabbage only add the dry maida and salt?

It gives a tangy flavor if a bit of white vinegar is added to the sauce

I tried this recipe, it was ok sort of. but i must say, it ws not as good as we have outside in the restaurant. So, it was not a perfect recipe for manchurian.Also, you should add spring onion instead of onion.
