Spicy Tangy Chinese Chilli Soya

Spicy Tangy Chinese Chili Soya is a must have snack for cold winters. The hot spicy sauce gives a divine warmth which you wanted to enjoy in your cozy couch with your family and friends. Thought of sharing this recipe as it is a special bowl of chunks in a juicy spicy sauce. You will be able to bite small chunks with tiny bits of garlic and onion. Garlic along with soy sauce ===> i feel iam in a calm and cool chinese restaurant in China. I can feel and taste the authentic chinese flavor in this bowl.

If i did have chicken in my pantry, i would definitely try making Chinese Chili Chicken.

This is my brunch today. Started preparing chili Soya. Had been tasting it from the beginning and i completed half the bowl. Left out is not sufficient for us all to relish. That clearly implies i have to make another bowl again.


Garlic has to fine chopped or minced if in case you don’t like its taste and smell. I preferred small garlic chunks but my kids did not like it. So i need to mince it next time.
