Baby corn manchurian recipe

Baby corn manchurian recipe - Today I am sharing with you all a very tasty and flavorful baby corn manchurian recipe. This is a delectable dish which you can have it as an appetizer. It is usually served before a meal as  the first course. Usually in chinese dishes ajinomoto is invariably used, however I have not added it while preparing this dish. This mouthwatering manchurian tastes great when it is hot. This is  a perfect dish to please both small kids and adults. I have prepared the dry manchurians and served it as a starter. You can also prepare similar type of dish with vegetables like mushroom, cauliflower, cabbage in combination with carrot, but the method of preparation is slightly different than this. I'll post that too in due course. Manchurian is so popular in all parts of India and it doesn't need much introduction.
