I had to rescue the fried baby corns from Chotu as he was munching them before even i could get ready with the manchurian sauce. Enjoy this crunchy, saucy & yummy snack with your kids too..

 

Tips:

  1. Make the manchurian sauce and keep it ready. Finally add the fried baby corns before serving. It will become soggy if left in the sauce for a long time.
  2. Do not skip spring onions, as they have a unique flavor.
