The traditionally non-vegetarian dish viz. Chilli chicken is modified for vegetarians. This melt in the mouth starter flavoured with all the ethnic chinese flavours is an all time favourite that is really easy to prepare. Serve it as a starter or even as accompaniment for your main meal.
Rice, which is the first course of an Italian meal, takes on an exciting and wholesome avatar here, loaded with veggies. Risotto is usually made with special kind of rice called Arborio rice, which is extremely absorbent and gives a creamy consistency to the dish even though the grains remain separate. Since Arborio rice is not easily available in India replace it with brown rice which works equally well.
