lazy cooks mushroom manchurian and awards!

With due apologies to the actual manhcurian.........this is my version and i have it with paranthas!.......can't get anymore "fusiony" than this!
200 button mushrooms(cut into half)
4 tablespoons of cornflour +1 tablespoon of flour(maida)
salt and pepper to taste
1 capcicum cut into med. sized pcs
2 spring onions cut into pcs
1 tablespoon gingergarlic paste
1 tablespoon each of soya sauce,tomato sauce,red chilli sauce and green chilli sauce
1 tsp cornflour dissolved in a little water
1.  Make a paste with the cornflour and flour,salt,pepper and water.coat the mushrooms in this batter and deep fry till done(takes about 5 mins)
2.In a wok/kahhai,heat 1 tsp of veg. oil....fry the ginger garlic saute the onions(the bulb portion of the spring onions) and capcicum(on a high flame)..till the onions are slightly caramelised.....add the sauces and 1/2 cup of water..let it come to a boil.....taste the seasoning.......add the last bit of dissolved cornflour..........the mixture will thicken..then add the fried mushrooms and the spring onions(the green portion).

3.Serve hot.Although i like this with roti/paranthas..this makes a really good starter......and ofcourse goes well with fried rice.This recipe is adapted from the weikfield cornflour carton(they have the recipe printed on one side)Poonam frm.
