P.F. Chang's China Bistro is a popular American Chinese restaurant chain which has its branches in other countries too. Though I like Indo Chinese dishes more than American Chinese,one of the dishes we really liked from P.F.Chang's in Kuwait, is the delicious appetiser, 'Dynamite Shrimp'. But it actually costs around 150 dollars to have half a dozen of shrimp coated in that delicious, creamy, tangy and zesty sauce from the restaurant. It is better to make it at home, if you can help it.
That set me in search for a perfect recipe, but most of the recipes I tried from the web, turned out to be too sour or too bland.So I set forth to do experiments of my own with various ingredients and I found out a recipe which was quite similar to the original one.
Let me share it here...
Am still working on perfecting the recipe. If I come up with a more exact one I shall upload it InshaAllah.. :) Till then, Enjoy cooking!
