Think of a comfort meal, cooked at home quicker than your closest home delivery and enjoyed with your feet up on the couch with your favourite program. The first thing that comes to my mind is Chinese food! Hot, spicy, sweet, sour and covered in a glossy sauce.

The universal appeal and popularity of Chinese takeaway style food is because it caters to our “Bliss Point”—the point at which we get the greatest pleasure from the combination of salt, sugar and fat. Cooking your Chinese food at home ensures the quality and freshness of the ingredients used and complete control over the use of sodium, sugar and oil.

This easy and quick recipe makes a delicious meal that you can enjoy in minutes without overdosing on salt and fat.

You can use the same recipe for boneless chicken and prawns for a super quick and vibrant meal.
Chilli fish and fish Manchurian are same dish in restaurants, but in some restaurants fish Manchurian is made with fish balls. But the sauce remains the same.

Recipe Notes

  1. The color of your dish can vary depending on your red chili sauce.
  2. If you are using salmon to prepare this dish, you need not use egg since this fish remains moist and soft after frying too. But if you are using any other kind, you could toss the fish cubes in 1 small egg to lock the juices in the fish so that they remain soft, juicy and moist after frying.


Lungfish can live out of water for several years. It secretes a mucus cocoon and burrows itself under the unbaked earth. It takes in air with its lung through a built-in breathing tube that leads to the surface. A lungfish has both gills and a lung.
