Vegan Chinese Noodles with Baby corn Manchurian

This is my favorite combo πŸ™‚ I am a huge fan of Chinese food. I know, who isn’t? Although the noodles is an authentic chinese food, but manchurian isn’t. It is a combination of Indian and Chinese flavors. Usually it is vegan-the ones you get in India, but when I ordered one last week in an Indian restaurant in Sydney, the chef said they use egg whites and cannot be veganised. So I decided to make one at home. All I had was baby corn and I am so glad it did πŸ™‚ I have tagged it under ‘Evil Fried Temptations :P’
