Tofu Manchurian Dry

Second day of Kids Delight Snacking all way is Tofu Manchurian. I am fond of all varieties of Manchurian. Today's recipe is almost similar to the other manchurian recipes. I replaced today with Tofu. My kids are not still very sure about what Tofu is, only that they don't really prefer it much to Paneer.

So making this as Manchurian was the best decision as they thought it was Paneer and loved it. I made it as dry snack with just corn flour mix and soya sauce as sauce that gave this dish a slight smoother texture to the Manchurian.

This goes for my Kids Delight event, hosted by Sandhya themed on Snacking all the way.
