Fried String Beans - Sichuan Style


 I am sure most among us do enjoy having Chinese food especially while eating out.Chinese Food in India is ubiquitous, be it small road side stalls selling "chow mien" and "manchurian" or up market establishments serving variety of mouth watering prawn or  seafood dishes.It is only after coming to China and tasting the different varieties of Chinese food I understood  that Indianized version of Chinese food is completely different from the Authentic Chinese cuisine (probably because Chinese dishes in India is customized for the Indian palate).

Chili Prawn

When we talk about sea food Prawn is the first thing which comes to our mind...and when i talk about prawn/shrimp it always reminds me of the movie Forrest Gump and Bubba's obsession with shrimps
If you haven't watched the movie yet do watch it ;its never too late. 
I generally prepare Chili prawns on weekends as the pealing of prawns generally takes some time.My husband loves the prawn chili I prepare..He loves this dish not because I prepare it, but due to the fact that it is very tasty (I myself love to have multiple tastings while preparing the dish :) ).The dish best goes with noodles or mild spicy fried rice.

Tandoori chicken

Tandoori Chicken !!!!!!!! ...One of the most popular Indian subcontinent dish and is among my favorite.....Let me give a brief about this dish...Tandoori Chicken is originated from the Mughlai cuisine but with time it became popular throughout India.
It is traditionally cooked on high heat tandoor or a barbecue grill. The chicken is prepared by exposing the food to live- fire, this is how the dish is named Tandoori Chicken. A tandoor is a cylindrical clay oven where the heat is generated by a charcoal or wood fire and smoking by the fat and food juices that drip on the charcoal...We always think of having tandoori chicken in a restaurant  but it is equally easy to prepare and enjoy at home with an added advantage of tweaking the flavors as per your palate.
Well at home you can prepare it in an oven in case you don't have a tandoor...the dish will come out equally good or even better...
