Thai/Chinese Cuisine have something unique in them I believe, so they appeal so much to the world. They are quite flexible, and can be fusioned according to the taste buds of different countries or regions. It was after coming to Singapore, I realised what we call Chinese food in India is actually Indo-Chinese. I feel,so far a dish is tasty enough..... tampering with its originality is not much of a crime.
The other day two of my friends were saying how fussy kids are about food nowadays.I said present some colourful food before them.... and variety of. At my home, the senior and junior are so much of rice haters I constantly have to think bringing variety in their food. I had some grouper fillets, green chillies, red Kashmiri chillies and half a bottle of Thai chilli sauce. I thought let's start of, how much
authenticity it had I don't know, only an expert can say. The product was colourful and the men's plates were clean in minutes. And I was all smiles.
