Junk food Lovers!

burgerWho doesn't love to gorge on those yummy roadside food once in a while? Though due to health reasons we tend to keep away from those delicious junk food, there is no harm if we tease our taste buds occasionally. I guess, those fast foods and snacks are supposed to be great appetizers!

I have seen that North Americans simply love junk food! Every month nearly 90 percent of the children in America eat at McDonald's! In the United States, the food industry spends more than $33 billion a year to advertise products rich in fat, sugar and salt. Despite all those risks of obesity and cancer, average Americans consume more food rich in fat and sugar, than their European or Oriental counterparts. Aerated soft drinks, milkshakes and smoothies contain twice as much fat as hamburgers. However, these are a huge craze among school, college and even office goers.

People now consume more roadside junks and snacks than they did before, not considering the health factors or the quality of ingredients that are used in preparing them. Rather than eating homemade food, working people and school children prefer eating fast foods, that are tasty and pocket-friendly at the same time. How many of them know about the risk factors involved? In America, popular fast foods are French fries, fried chicken, chicken nuggets, tacos, pizzas, burgers, hot dogs, sandwiches, along with ice creams, soft drinks and milkshakes. Fish and chips are popular in the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand. Fish is battered and then deep fried.In India people have great fondness for kebabs, rolls, fries, pizzas, bhelpuri, chaat, panipuri or phuchkas, samosas, dosas, dahi vadas, dhokla, and many others. One will get awestruck with the smorgasbord of fast foods and snacks that India has to offer!

So if you are visiting India for the first time, you should taste these yummy snacks to discover the true spirit of India! Forget about the health factors and indulge in those mouthwatering snacks. I'm sure they will leave you craving for more!

Mouthwatering Chicken Cutlets

Though the Bird Flu panic has still not subsided, here's a mouthwatering dish which is a favorite among all chicken lovers. Enjoy!

To make Chicken Cutlets, you will need: 6 chicken breast fillets(boneless), onion paste 6 tsp, ginger paste 1 tsp, garlic paste 1 tsp, green chilli paste 1 tsp, vinegar 4 tsp, chopped coriander and parsley leaves 1 tsp each, garam masala 1 tsp, 3 eggs, oil(for frying), salt to taste.

Procedure: First soften the chicken breasts by pasting them lightly. Now mix onion, ginger, garlic, green chilli pastes, garam masala, chopped coriander and parsley leaves with the lightly-pasted chicken breasts, adding lemon juice or vinegar with them. Marinate for an hour. After an hour, add the eggs(yolk as well as whites) on top of the chicken fillets. Mix everything thoroughly and add salt. Coat both sides of the fillets properly with the paste. After this, coat the chicken fillets with bread crumbs. Heat oil in a shallow fry pan. When the oil becomes red hot, fry the fillets until they are golden in color. Serve hot with salad.
