He is not a fan of fancy eating, rather loves to eat simple but unique dishes. Whereas I love to try different types of food. In Bengal, you will get to see so many varieties of preparation on fish in parties / weddings. Among them few dishes are strictly made for those parties, I mean you can't even find them in restaurants ... how strange ! One of my favourite indo-chinese dish is 'Chilli Fish' - which is always a rockstar of any party's menu and also you can get them in many Chinese restaurants of India. It tastes heavenly with hakka fried rice or noodles and it is very easy to make. Try this recipe in your kitchen and enjoy.
