Mongolian chicken, 2 dishes plus 1 soup event

Mangolian chicken, 2 dishes plus 1 soup event

When i know Cuisine Paradise hosting the 2 dishes plus 1 soup event / $20 budget meal event, i know i have no problem to participate this event. Usually I will prepare 2-3 dishes plus 1 soup or no soup for daily dinner. If $20 is referring to our currency Ringgit Malaysia RM, i think it is hard for me to prepare 2 dishes +1 soup with only RM 20 when fish or meat are in the menu. But when convert $20 convert to RM, it is about RM 50, then this amount is sufficient to have a good meals.

This was one of the 2 dishes plus 1 soup meal i prepared earlier, stir fried cabbage with anchovies, ABC soup (carrot, tomato, patato, celery and pork ribs) and a new recipe that i learnt recently, Mongolian chicken. Actually I'm new to Mongolian chicken. I try to google search, it seem this is a famous Chinese dish but the ingredients is slightly difference from what i learnt, more to Asian style which added curry leaves.

I was in the rush at that time, that's why not many photos that I can share. The total I spent for this meal was about RM 30 ( $ 13 ) ..

Mongolian chicken looks really interesting, bit like sweet and sour pork. I don't think you will find this dish in Mongolia, just like Mongolian BBQ!

Looks delicious...i used to boil soup for meals at home when my boys were younger but now seldom since they have grown out of the habbit of having soup with their meals. ABC soup was one soup I cooked very often then.

In this climate, it is always good to be aware of budget and meal costing! for us AU$a0 will be a good meal but if it is RM$50 convert to au it will be around $6...might be rice, fried egg, vege soup and possibly fried spam! hahaha. how unhealthy LOL

This Mongolian chicken looks yummy, and seems so easy to prepare, plus uses basic ingredients.

It is very much similar to a dish served in India called Chicken Manchurian, though there's heavy use of red food color and chilli powder.
