  1. Todas las recetas son una maravilla de experiencia de sabores deliciosos, gracias gracias!!!!5 stars

  2. Hi
    Thank you for your wonderful receipes. I have tried many and all turned out really well.
    I had a question for you.
    What is the difference between chilli and manchurian? Both recipes look similar.
    TIA

    1. Thank you. In manchurian tomato ketchup is added which is not added in a chilli recipe.

  3. I made this today. I used oyster mushrooms which I just saluted with the Ingrients per your recipe without the maida and corn starch instead of deep frying. I’m not a big fan of deep frying or maida and corn starch. The rest of the recipe was followed to the letter. Had it with angel hair pasta. Was delicious. Thank you5 stars
