Manchurian is a typical candidate of the Indo-chinese cooking. Indo-Chinese cooking is nothing but Chinese spices and cooking style for Indian taste buds. It is served in the main course a appetizer. There are a lot of variations around it. Gravy, no gravy, with noodles/rice etc.
It was made popular from Kolkata and has traveled all across India. We have versions like Punjabi Chinese too in the Northern India. You may read more here.
However, “Manchurian” cuisine is from a region of China in the North called “Donbei”.
