Indo Chinese Food has become an integral part of our modern day eating style. Unfortunately most of the restaurants which serve Chinese food don’t pay much attention to the recipe. All Indo Chinese food taste the same. They have the same sauce poured over different vegetables or meat. Therefore, I avoid eating Chinese food out. 

Lately my husband asked me to make Manchurian at home. I was reluctant at once but then I did give it a try. To my utter amazement it tasted awesome and nothing like the food they serve at restaurants. And then there was no looking back. I tried my hands on Vegetable Manchurian, Vegetable Hakka Noodles, Szechuan Rice, Gobhi Manchurian, Fried Rice, American Chopsuey and currently Chili Mushroom

Directions:

1. Thoroughly wash Mushrooms under lukewarm water and cut them into long slices.
