Introduction: Spicy Veg Balls in Hot Garlic Sauce

In India, Indo-Chinese cuisine is extremely popular. Indo- Chinese or Indian Chinese cuisine is the adaptation of Chinese seasoning and cooking techniques to Indian tastes through a larger offering of vegetarian dishes. This is one very popular Indo-Chinese dish prepared in India. I hope you like it.

Also I was not able to create a photo collage as my Picasa was not working and also after trying various other online tools, I just uploaded the photos one after the other in the instructions. I apologize and please please advice me on which tool I can use in future to create and upload collages easily.
