Mock Chicken again in the menu. When i went to buy some props to a mega mall for my blog i remembered to buy this too as we do not get it near our house. So was awaiting to do this as i can see my family widening their eyes . A clever step to stop them from eating non vegetarian and also to  save the earth. Mock chicken should taste like chicken. i do not know as i never knew how chicken tastes . But my family says that it is like chicken. This time i made Chicken Kuzhambu and bought Golden Balls as i did not get the earlier  one . Ok enough of bragging about my adventure with mock chicken and now for the recipe.
