Chinjabi the word comes from Chinese+Punjabi! ha ha!!,Isn't that what we are used to? :),the common Indian can find a chowmein stall at every street corner,and a newer version of every possible chinese dish in every mushrooming restaurant a common example being gobi manchurian,chilli paneer and so on....I guess now only a few of us are left with a taste for the authentic and adapting it to suit one's palate is the norm :), not that I am all for it, but what the heck, if it tastes good then it should not matter where it originated from!! At the end of the day it should just be a healthy, satisfying, fun meal for friends and family!RIGHT? Do YOU know of any CHINJABI DISHES??
