Paneer Chilli

Make these melt-in-your-mouth Chinese flavored Paneer Chilli to be served as an appetizer, snack or as a side to a main course!

Paneer Chilli Recipe | Chinese Chilly Paneer (Dry & Gravy options) Indians love their Chinese food.

I bold-ed “their” because the Chinese food you get in India is very different from the authentic Chinese food you get in China… or so I’ve been told.

But that really is not my problem. I’m not really hung up on the fact that Indians make their Chinese food totally wrong. One of these days, I’d truly love to have some real vegetarian Chinese Food. But when you extrapolate ethnic Chinese flavors to soft cubes of Cottage Cheese, you are pretty much making a firecracker dish! And I’m quite happy munching on these not-so-authentic yet so-damn-delicious Paneer Chilli!  (more…)

No matter which part of the world you’re from, I’m sure (hoping) you would have had Chinese (inspired) cuisine at least once in your life.

And if you have had Chinese Food, chances are – you keep going back for more and more. The spicy food is so addicting that in some countries like India, we have a whole cuisine called “Indo-Chinese” cuisine dedicated to Chinese inspired foods.

This Schezwan Fried Rice is one of the one pot wonders of the Indo Chinese Cuisine. I’m not sure how “authentically Chinese” this dish really is, but I do know that a lot of Chinese techniques are used in the making of this dish and it does taste (according to me) like a very good interpretation of Chinese Food.  (more…)

Noodle Frankie

Noodle Frankie is extremely popular in my college. A thin tortilla stuffed with red hot noodles and other spices and rolled like a Burrito makes it an absolute delight to munch on during breaks. Bit by the nostalgia bug, (I graduated in March) I decided to recreate the same roll at home. And I believe I almost succeeded. A bit of tailoring the recipe here and there would give me the perfect homemade Noodle Burrito I’ve been looking for. What you see here is the perfect Noodle Frankie recipe (I hope so!). (more…)
