Let’s Get Cooking:
Now, let’s talk turkey—err, chicken. Grab your apron because we’re diving into the kitchen for a dance with flavors.


500g of chicken, because more is always merrier
A cup of finely chopped cabbage, adding that crunch factor
Half a cup of thinly sliced capsicum, because colors make everything better
A quarter cup of spring onions, for that freshness kick
Two tablespoons each of soy sauce, chili sauce, and tomato ketchup – the trio of flavor champions
One tablespoon of ginger-garlic paste, because let’s kick it up a notch
Two tablespoons of cornflour, turning that chicken into a crispy superstar
Salt and pepper to taste, because seasoning is an art
Cooking oil for frying, because crispy is the way to go

Marinate the chicken like it’s going on a flavor vacation – soy sauce, chili sauce, tomato ketchup, ginger-garlic paste, salt, and pepper. Let it soak up the goodness for 30 minutes.
Roll the marinated chicken in cornflour and take it for a hot oil swim until it’s golden brown and crispy.
In another pan, toss in the cabbage, capsicum, and spring onions for a veggie fiesta.
Add the fried chicken to the veggie party, toss it like you just don’t care, and there you have it – Chicken Manchurian ready to steal the spotlight.
