Hot Garlic Chicken

Best Blogger Tips
Chinese food has been an evergreen favorite in the household. After having eaten chinese food across the world, must say, that the chinese food made indian style has its own charm and I'm a self professed die hard fan of it. My wife and my managers will actually swear by the number of times I have gone looking for American Chopsuey, even for breakfast :)
DimSums obviously are a second favorite for me and the number one favorite for my better half. The quality of chinese restaurants are judged by how good their Dim Sum's are.
This particular dish was made one sleepy weekend when I felt the craving for chinese food.

Addendum : I have had a few requests asking for recipes for Momos. Here's the one I posted quite some time back. It has an okay video shot with a mobile at my friends place whose wife makes amazing momo's.
