It happens to be blessed with a number a good few chefs / in my life, and are more than willing to share knowledge in cooking tips. It attributed most Indian dishes Chinese inroads in this space to these kind souls. God bless you. It's no secret that I love Chinese fusion Indian cuisine. Sometimes many foods, especially in Indo-Chinese fusion to start and chicken and sweet corn soup is a must. :)

You must remember that a fried egg you see in the picture above is not part of the recipe unique piece. Nihal loves eggs with a piece Sui and I wanted it to feel like I was eating in a restaurant.
