You would have heard of chinese bhel, chinese dosa, and so on… but definitely not a chinese burger! this unique recipe is sure to be a huge hit with any audience. The spread makes use of schezuan sauce, to give a tangy, spicy touch, and cabbage leaves are used instead of lettuce to enhance the chinese feel. The salad used in the burger is a slight variant of kung phao potatoes, and lends another unique point of view to this recipe. Serve it with a traditional chinese salad – khimchi, for a well-rounded chinese offering.
