Lucknow here I come


Lucknow here I come
Mumbai to Lucknow is the next destination. A friend from my UK university is coming around to India. He asked me to join him, I thought -> why not!.
I’m gonna try and get hands on the different types of kebabs being offered. For some reason I’m getting the biryani word but i thought it was hyderabad which was famous for it. Anyways, the plan is to meet up, eat up, drink up, and explore the city. While at it, try and get a few culinary tips for the locals if there is anything to learn.
Other than that, enjoying my overpriced bad coffee at the airport. On a positive note – I recall the Indian airports being much more Shabbir than this -definitely good job handling airports, the way forward!


How to make chinese chicken

Chinese chicken comes in many forms and varieties, I called it Chinese because it uses vinegar and soy sauce for the main flavors.  I was bored with the regular Indian tastes and asked my cook to show me something new, this dish is her sons favorite one.
