RECIPE: CHINESE STYLE VEGETABLE FRANKIE

I love Chinese food correction Indian Chinese food. When I was a child the only Chinese food I had was in India and I though that is how Chinese food tasted. It’s only after my trip in USA, that I tasted original Chinese food and realised how different it is from the the Indian version. Indian Chinese is garlicky, spicy, oily, colourful, lots of variety in the vegetarian department, plus it’s a mixture of Indian food items with Chinese noodles and sauces for example we get the Chinese Frankie, Chinese dosa, Chinese sabji’s etc. In fact Calcutta city has the biggest china town in the county which serves Indian Chinese and it’s on my wish list to go, visit and eat.

This recipe my mum use to make for us when we were children so we would eat our vegetables. This is a very good tiffin item as well.
