5 stars for potato balls and 1 star for gravy. Potato balls were out of this world,very tasty, I rolled them in corn flour which I bought in Indian food store and deep fried them in my deep fryer at 340 F. Gravy was awful,very salty,impossible to eat,perharps low sodium soy sause would improve this. We ate the potato balls but couldn't eat the gravy. Sorry.

I spent a great deal of effort assembling this dish and was very excited to prepare it for dinner tonight. However, when I dropped the potato balls in the oil they fizzled and then slowly disintegrated. Perhaps the author intended for us to use corn starch instead of corn flour? Either way the dish was an abysmal failure and a source of much frustration.

My BF is from India, and he has been craving manchurian for the longest time. I found your recipe and I noticed 4 people already gave it 5 stars, and so I HAD to try it!! Not only did it come out absolutely DELICIOUS, he said it tastes better than the restaurant's version here, so we will DEFINITELY be making this again and again. I created an account just to give your recipe a 5 star rating!! Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful recipe with us.

Thanks Charishma! This is the first recipe of yours I've tried and just love it!! I didn't have any chili garlic sauce so I added more ketchup & garlic & a tspn of vinegar and got a fabulous dish!! Also, I realized you have to keep the heat on high while frying the manchurian itself otherwise it falls apart! Thanks so much!! Look forward to making it many more times!

This is the BEST potato recipe! The little balls are nice and crunchy and flavored nicely (I used about 1/4 C cilantro cause I love that stuff). The gravy is so special... I just love it! Kind of has an Oriental flavor and it's just fantastic on the crunchy potatoes. Just the little bit of spice from the chilies was nice. I used jalapenos. I did have trouble frying the potato balls. They kept falling apart on me so I ended up with pyramids, rectangles and prisms instead! No matter, it's all good. Maybe next time I will coat them with more cornstarch and deep fry them. Also, I didn't pour the gravy in with the potatoes but served it on the side. This way I could re-heat the balls (hot oven, about 10 minutes.) They were just as good the next day. Thanks so much Char, for this great recipe!!!
