Mango Lettuce Salad

Summer at its worst! Lived off salads, juice, tender coconut water and fruits for a good part of last week. Our backyard mango trees have given a reasonably good yield this year. A salad I prepared recently is a mango based one with iceberg lettuce, cherry tomatoes and cucumber.

Indo Chinese Food ~ Chicken Manchurian

A party appetizer that is loved by all at my home. After a couple of trials, I have settled with this recipe. The secret to a flavorful Chicken Manchurian is the use of chicken stock.

Serve hot to savor the true flavor of this Indo Chinese starter.
