Chicken Fry - An India meets China recipe

Best Blogger Tips
Lately in office we have been having a pot luck competition wherein different teams are busy conjuring up specialities and are being judged on this. I happen to be the one to taste and judge it. Now for some it may be envious, but believe you me, sampling so much food and critiquing it is not easy. All said and done, I get this chance to eat really killer dishes and post them here.
The one listed below was prepared by a team member who is a pure vegetarian and has never eaten a morsel in her life, but thanks to her husband who loves non-veg food, she prepares non-veg food. And this one was good.
Also, today happens to be our little one's birthday. He turns 3 today. Hope all the mischief has been left behind with the naughty two's and 3's bring in some peace in this household kind courtesy him.

the best part about the indi chinese is that you can always prepare it at home with the least ingredientst ... but haan bahar khaane ka mazaa kuchh aur hi hai :)

you just shattered all hopes that I had on some sanity in the house ( can u imagine, he's all over me as I write) :)
I didn't understand the 5 tsp thing. For a kg of chicken, no it isn't.
Thanks for your comments. The combo is truly strange but tastes great.
