Chicken Manchurian (Indo Chinese Spicy Chicken)

The best Restaurant-style Chicken Manchurian with Gravy that you can make at home in under 30 minutes! There’s Chinese food, and then there’s Indian Chinese, agreed?

Cauliflower ‘rice’ has been a trending recipe on the internet for the last few years, with many even making cauliflower fried ‘rice’. This is an innovative cauliflower recipe, perfect if you’re on a paleo diet, vegetarian or vegan. My version uses cauliflower ‘florets’ or ‘grains’ in a manner that even veggie haters and picky eaters will be surprised with and love!

These really are the juiciest, most moist Chicken Satay skewers! The marinade is abundant with spices that give it a distinct Thai flavour.
