The Chinese cuisine was introduced to India by the Hakka community residing in Kolkata . Some of them were said to be bought as slaves by the Portuguese ,who had settled here. Yang Tai Chow was the first recorded Chinese to migrate to India for better business prospects. In 1778, he put down roots in Kolkata, then known  as Calcutta, the capital of British India and the most accessible metropolitan region from China. Many of them started working  in the ports of Kolkata and Madras.

Slowly  a Chinatown was developed  in the Tiretta Bazaar region of Kolkata which sold Chinese food and ingredients. Hakka community was named not by a region in China but by the language they spoke. They spoke the Hakka language. Over the years this cuisine has evolved with the infusion of Indian spices and ingredients to cater to the Indian palate and came to be known as Indo-Chinese cuisine.

I prepared this dish during a Facebook live show  in collaboration with two International bloggers Giangi Townsend and Azlin Bloor.
