It is a well-known fact that Kolkata is the birthplace of Indian Chinese food due to the Hakka Chinese merchants who settled there during the British empire in India. The Indian Chinese cuisine combines the characteristic Chinese dark soy sauce and vinegar to impart the Chinese flavour to the deep-fried, spicy foods that Indians are fond of. We also have our Indian version of Sichuan sauce (schezwan sauce in India!) that uses dry red chillies in the place of Sichuan peppercorns. Yet another popular Chinese dish is the Manchurian style dishes that have battered Paneer, cauliflower, Mushrooms etc deep fried in a spicy soy-based sauce and a paste of garlic, ginger and green chillies. Kids go gaga over this dish! Foodlovers nearby Vastrapur and Prahlad Nagar who want to taste the delectable mouth-watering Paneer Manchurian will fall in love with Food On Way, where you can find more varieties of these Indianised Chinese foods!

It is very interesting to trace the history of how Manchurian recipes came to occupy such an essential place in the Indian Chinese menu of our Indian restaurants. Manchuria is the name of a region in North- East china and the people there were known as Manchus or Manchurians. The very first Manchurian dish dates back to 1975 when the Chinese restaurants in India started to feature Chicken Manchurian which resembled dishes from the Manchu cuisine in terms of taste, flavour and texture. We have an assortment of Manchurian dishes at Food On Way that is exemplary in terms of taste, flavour and ingredients used. Dry Manchurian varieties are a part of our starters menu and the semi gravy variant is a much-preferred accompaniment to Hakka noodles and fried rice. It is rated as one of our top-selling dishes. We also provide value for money with unbeatable quality through our noodles and fried rice combos that come with the Manchurian dish. Our chef greatly recommends that these be must-order dishes at Food On Way.
