I’m back!!!! Thanks Sharmi & Srivalli for enquiring about me…

The past few weeks had been soo hectic & could not blog, so now I have come up with a Spicy dish for you…     

Let me confess,  I dont like to eat Chinese food here in the US.

No offense but, first of all the odour in those restaurants makes me feel like throwing up.

Except to eat in Indian restaurants, I really dont eat out much, Chinese or otherwise.

Somehow I have never been able to adapt to any other cuisines. I am happy with my Indian food.

So when I want to eat some Indian Chinese its easy, I prepare Chilli Chicken & Fried Rice.   🙂

The Capsicum/Peppers added enhances the flavours of this wonderful dish.
