Schezuan Noodles

So I've been eating pretty healthy for a while now - time for all that to change! I knew it couldn't last! This week I'm craving good old-fashioned grease and spices-that-make-your-eyes-water - sounds suspiciously like Indian Chinese no?!

Like Rusty from a Ruskin Bond novel, I'm a sucker for street food. It has always always held some mysterious allure! My first close-encounter with Indian Chinese food was at Ruia Naka. But it wasn't until we ate Chinese food in Parel that we experienced gastronomic nirvana. Our palates and certainly our insides would never be the same again!

Much to my delight, I came across Ching's Recipe Secret Sauce at my local Indian store. Glory be! I dipped into its fiery hot goodness...my insides quivered, alternating horror and delight! In an attempt to make it semi-healthy, I chucked in some veggies and soba noodles. The results are nothing like the street vendors' (no suprises there!) but still satisfyingly spicy.

That looks awesome...I am a big noodle fan, and of course-the Indian-Chinese recipes. They're always a hit.

Cheers,Trupti

I too love the Ching's sauces, but didn't like the manchurian much, the schezwan is good
You write ups are too good, very engaging
