Step-by-Step Recipe:

  1. Start by hard-boiling the eggs, cooling them down, and peeling off the shell. 🥚✨
  2. Cut the boiled egg whites into small pieces and add them to a mixing bowl. 🥚🍲
  3. Add sliced onions, green chillies, ginger, garlic, spring onion greens, soy sauce, salt, and white pepper to the bowl. Do not add all the corn flour and refined flour at once. 🧅🌶️🍚
  4. Gradually add the flours in batches to achieve the desired consistency. The batter should not be too doughy. 🌽🍚
  5. Mix the ingredients well using a spatula or your hands. You can also add carrots, beans, and capsicum if you like, although the egg flavor may get overshadowed. 🥕🌽🍳
  6. Heat oil in a pan on high heat, then reduce the heat and wait for a couple of minutes. 🍳🔥
  7. Shape small batches of the mixture into roundels and gently place them in the hot oil. 🍳🔵
  8. Fry the egg Manchurian balls on medium-low heat until they turn crisp and golden brown. Avoid stirring for the first minute to prevent them from disintegrating. 🍳🔥👌
  9. While the balls are frying, you can prepare the Manchurian sauce simultaneously for better results. 🍲🔥🍛

For the Sauce: 🍲🥡

  1. In a wok set over high heat, add oil and stir in chopped onion, garlic, ginger, and green chilies. Cook for a minute. 🍳🔥🌶️
  2. Add spring onion greens, fresh coriander, soy sauce, vinegar, and red chilli sauce (optional). Quickly mix the ingredients. 🥢🌿🌶️
  3. Pour in the vegetable stock or water and season with salt, pepper, and sugar. Be cautious with the salt due to the salty sauces. 🧂💧🍚
  4. Bring the sauce to a boil and prepare a corn-starch slurry by mixing 2 parts corn-starch with 1 part water. 🌽🍚💧
  5. Once the sauce boils, add the slurry to thicken it. Stir continuously until the sauce thickens. 🍲🔥🌽
  6. Add the spring onion bulbs and capsicum, allowing them to remain crunchy. 🧅🌶️
  7. Lower the heat and add the fried egg Manchurian balls, stirring gently to retain their crispiness. 🍳🍲🌶️
