  • 2-3 Cloves of garlic, finely chopped

  • 1 Red chilli, finely chopped, or 5g of red chilli flakes
  • 10ml Sesame oil
  • 25ml Soy sauce
  • 25ml White wine vinegar
  • 25ml Honey
  • 25ml Tomato ketchup

  • Half a green pepper, fine julienne cut
  • Half a red onion, fine julienne cut

Manchurian, as it sounds, is a classic example of Indian fusion. It takes influences and ingredients from both India and China with a contrasting sweet, sour and spicy flavours. Lamb Weston’s Hash Browns have a lovely crispy outer and a soft fluffy centre and are great, coated in this Manchurian sauce.

  1. Finely chop the garlic, ginger and chilli or blend into a paste then fry in sesame oil in a hot wok until softened and lightly browned. Add all the liquids and bring to a boil for 2 minutes.  Keep warm
  2. Fry the tots for 3mins at 175°C then add straight to the wok with the hot sauce along with the peppers and onions. Toss until nicely coated and serve, garnished with sesame seeds and spring onions
