Chinese, an International cuisine which is eaten widely in India and is loved by many of us. Especially for us at work, when we talk about eating out, the first cuisine preference will be Chinese or Asian. Among 6 people, 4 will be raising their hands for Chinese. In India, Chinese recipes are slightly modified to suit the taste buds of Indians. It is spicy and filled with flavours as compared to the authentic Chinese food. As the food is different to suit the taste buds of Indians, it is named as Indo-Chinese.
