Make. Eat. Relish. Repeat.
What do you do when you're trying to follow a strict diet but you've bookmarked a 100 places on Zomato? Well, you pick the relatively healthier option from the list. That's exactly what I did. However, I betrayed my diet when I asked the server to add extra butter garlic sauce, fried onions and crispy noodles to my wok. I'm sure some of you can empathize.
As for my Vegetarian wok, here's what the process looks like:
1. You're give a tiny bowl which needs to be loaded with all the veggies you can possibly put - Broccoli, American Corn, Baby Corn, Spring Onions, you name it, they have it
2. The server asks you if you prefer Paneer or Tofu. In a desperate attempt to salvage my diet, I picked Tofu
3. You pick a few sauces from a limited list displayed above the counter - my picks included Hot Chili Basil, Sweet Chili, Kung Pao and Butter Garlic (lots of it!) 4. You pick either rice or noodles which come in various types - I decided to choose brown rice (which was a tad bit undercooked)
5. Finally, you get to taste your wok and make changes, if needed. In addition, you can top up your Wok with condiments - crushed peanuts, fried onions and crispy noodles
What I love about Wok in the Box is that it's one of those few places that actually serves portions for one. It's filling, wholesome and a welcome change from the Desi Chinese that is available in most places. Now, I need to brisk Wok my way back to burn those calories!
