Manchurian Chicken

Manchurian Chicken

This spicy dish wasn't forged from the flames of Manchu, but like the long-reigning empire after which it was probably named, its heat will scorch your tongue for a long time. Instead, Manchurian chicken is a staple of Hakka Indian Chinese cuisine, descent from labour migrants whose work took them to the subcontinent, where fiery dishes reigned supreme. Their skilled culinary hands and tastes followed them, and meeting the curries and spices of India, perfumed their meats with chilies and sauce, serving them over rice or noodles. 

In Scarborough, some of the most established restaurants are Hakka Indian Chinese. Our city boasts a well developed community around the spicy cuisine, serving plates of Manchurian chicken and other dishes to the oldest residents and the newest comers.
