Tashi Cooks : Hindustani Chinese

Let us admit that we love the street-side style of Chinese, or Indo-Chinese more than the authentic Chinese food. For the first time, I tried my hands on this and realized it is super easy to make. I agree it is not the healthiest of the dishes but then you should never feel guilty if you enjoy eating something, portion control is the thing. I tried making fried rice with whatever content I had in my fridge and though I have made mushroom chilli here, you can definitely go ahead and make baby corn or gobi chilli with the same recipe. Do comment and let me know how you liked it!
