Recently had an amazing entreé so blissful; it’s surely gonna leave you lusting for more. I had had once for dinner in a party , but since couldn’t savour it enough, I tried it the very next day . But I found something missing, so I added my homemade shezwan sauce to it….
Yup!!! That’s what gave the dish an exotic kick- a twist which I always crave while trying to replicate a dish I eat at a party or restaurant. This one is simply going to pamper your tastebuds and enthral your senses. Comfort food is the category in which this dish must rightly fall into. Hailing from Italian cuisine where cheese , being the most requisite ingredient, with a fusion of Chinese shezwan sauce, it’s a must try.
