CHINESE CHICKEN FRIED RICE
riceThis recipe is one of my comfort foods and indeed a popular Indo Chinese treat in Mumbai.

Indian Chinese cuisine is the adaptation of Chinese seasoning and cooking techniques to Indian tastes through a larger offering of vegetarian  and non- veg dishes.
The Indian Chinese cuisine is said to have been developed by the small Chinese community that has lived in Kolkata for over a century.
Today, Chinese food is an integral part of the Indian culinary scene.
