Chicken Munchurian is a classic chinese recipe which has been a bit modified in Indian Style in this recipe. This dish requires a bit more time than the Chili chicken version. The Chicken Munchurian Recipe is quite tasty (and lip smacking) if prepared with correct amounts of sauce and spices. Try this recipe with other chinese main dishes like noodles or veg fried rice or even indian main dishes like Paratha or veg pulao.
