“Have you heard of Indo-Chinese cuisine?”, I asked my Chinese neighbor who had recently moved into the neighborhood. She said, “I have no idea what you are talking about”.

I smiled and shared with her that most of my Chinese friends were blissfully unaware of this fusion cuisine whereas when we were growing up in India in the 90’s, eating Indo-Chinese food was a popular eating out option with teens (and it still is).

So, what exactly is Indo-Chinese food?

Developed by the Chinese community who have been living in Kolkata for over a century, Indo-Chinese style of cooking adapts Chinese seasonings and cooking techniques to create a cuisine that would appeal to the Indian audience. Some of the popular dishes in this fusion cuisine are –

  1. Chili chicken
  2. Chilli paneer
  3. Schezwan fried rice
  4. Veg Manchurian
  5. Gobi Manchurian

Amongst the soups, Indo-Chinese corn soup and the hot and sour soup are the most popular ones. If you are new to this cuisine, this easy one-pot Indo-Chinese corn soup is a good recipe to start with.

Note Indo-Chinese corn soup should look the picture below. It has more texture to it than you see in the picture I have posted above. I pureed it a lot more than the recipe calls for just because my kids prefer a creamy texture. I have included both pictures so that you could look at the authentic version as well as get a feel of how it would look if it was completely pureed.
