The Chinese food that we have grown up, is an amalgamation of all things fiery, saucy and sizzling. It is not necessarily how it is cooked by our neighbouring country, but it is good enough for us. This is why it is slightly tough for us to take a liking for something else so quickly. If you are craving the roadside noodles, the greasy Manchurian, the sizzling honey chilli potato and aren't able to order in, it is time to wear than chef cap and start cooking up your favourite Chinese recipes yourself. You won't believe how quick and easy most of them are. Here are some of our favourites.
