Indo Chinese Cuisine is an adaptation of Chinese seasoning and cooking techniques to Indian tastes. We all like Chinese food but we Love Indo Chinese version because the taste is very homely, very Indian, very warm. I think each country adapts Chinese food to their taste buds. When we lived in Mexico the Chinese food almost tasted like Mexican food, similar salsa and similar seasoning.
The way Indo Chinese food has penetrated in our daily life style its simply amazing. Be it hakka noodles, manchurian, fried rice and many many other dishes. Infact I make it quite often in my kitchen because my kiddo loves pasta and noodles and with the help of noodles I can make him eat vegetables. I was requested to share recipe of hakka noodles by one of my viewers. I thought I must share this easy breezy recipe.
