Corn flour - 2 TBSP
Rice flour - 2 TBSP
Baking soda A pinch
Chilli powder 1/2 Tsp

1. Make a paste of Maida, Rice flour, Corn flour, Baking soda, Red chilli powder, Pepper Powder and salt. Check the spice level & make a smooth paste. If u like manchurian crispy add more rice flour and less maida. Add water to make a smooth paste.

2. Marinate the Tofu cubes in this batter, each tofu cube should be well coated with the paste. Allow to marinate for 1/2 hour.

3. Deep fry coated Tofu till the color changes to dark brown. Keep aside

4. Heat oil in a pan and add chopped Ginger and Garlic, chopped Onions, diced Capsicum & chopped Green chillies to it. Saute for 2 mins so that the onions and capsicum are still crunchy.

5. Now add the Red chillie sauce, Tomato sauce, Soya sauce, Vinegar, and Ajinomoto. Saute for a minute

6.Add the fried Tofu to this and saute, until the masala and the tofu get fried together nicely.
