    1. Here, I have used cabbage to make manchurian balls but one can also make use of cauliflower or carrots or any other preferred vegetable to make the balls.
    2. The masala is a ready made masala which does not require any other salt, spices and sauces.
    3. You can find these masalas anywhere online or in grocery stores.
    4. With the same masala, we can not only make veg manchurian but we can also make chicken manchurian with the same procedure just by replacing vegetables with minced chicken.
