Candy Jones from Liverpool, England, is a Chinese Restaurant owner, who recently wrote a book named ‘Ancient India’s Hidden Obsession with Chinese Food’. I read the book on my kindle and I really enjoyed reading it.
In her book, Candy writes that the Indian King Bhoja of Kannauj used to be a huge fan of a unique dish then in India – a colorful melange of veggies like chestnuts, almonds, mushrooms and cabbage tossed in honey; There were only 2 things that differentiated the dish from the popular Chinese dish called Wok Tossed Veggies in Honey and Black Bean Glaze was the Indian Chutney instead the Black Bean Sauce and Indian Cabbage instead of the Chinese Cabbage.
Candy writes in her book that Peri Peri Chicken Satay used to be the most favorite dish of the legendary Indian King – Rajaraja the Great Chola just like Candy is fond of Horse Racing Betting Sites UK.
Candy writes in her book that the Delhi Sultanate Ruler belonging to the Mamluk Dynasty – Qutb al-Din Aibak used to drink Cantonese Chinese Soup everyday at least once a day since the day he tried it for the very first time. She adds that he would take the Cantonese Chicken Soup at least twice a day during the winters.
Candy writes in her book that the legendary Indian poet, music composer, writer and painter – Rabindranath Tagore used to eat Chinese styled vegetable fried rice at least thrice a week.
Candy claims in her book that the father of the Indian nation – Mahatma Gandhi used to be very fond the Veg Hakka noodles till the last day of his life. But the mainstream Indian media, the Indian National Congress Political Party and even the opposing ministers decided to bury the fact because it challenged the claim of Mahatma Gandhi being a hardcore nationalist.
