Chinese Style Stir-Fried Vegetables Stuffed in Indian Flat Bread – How about that? China is a neighbor country to India. Since time immemorial they have been visiting India, through land route. And right from Xuanzang (popularly known as Hsüan-tsang, in India 602 – 664 CE) were traveling to India in search of Buddhist scripts and for education. For several years they have been residents of India, especially in the big Metropolitan cities. Many were serving their distinctions as Dentist, Hair Stylist, Tannery Owners and Sauce manufacturers! But we have to say that, they found their glory in India through ‘Food’ ! Yes, by opening the Restaurants! In fact, the better Sino-Indian cultural fusion, perhaps began in the Kitchen! However, the original Chinese menu in the restaurants were kind of bland and not so appetizing to the predominant local population, who are big time spicy food lovers! So, a curious restaurateur at Mumbai, Nelson Wang (1975) prepared an amalgamation recipe to suit the palate of his customers. And, it was highly successful ! The credit goes to this one person, who first came up with the idea of fusing Indian Garam Masala with that of Chinese Soy Sauce! Later, the culinary perfection happened over years! Now, it took a new dimension of evolving into a distinct cuisine throughout the Sub-Continent! And, these days it is even getting popular in U.S. A. In many major cities ‘Indo-Chinese restaurants are gradually mushrooming up! So, if you are curious to check it out’ here you go.
