Teaching you to order food in Chinese (no snails)

I'm Indian now.

We have ‘Indianized’ Chinese dishes to an extent where we have formed an entire new cuisine altogether – Indian Chinese. This is the only Chinese product that is made in India.

Do you really know the taste of genuine Chinese food? Or have you succumbed to the misconceptions of Chinese food?

6. Do you know what the best part of this schezwan sauce is? The strong taste of Kashmiri red chillies and ginger-garlic. It doesn’t get more Chinese that this.
