However,when we eat out,it is not possible to control the ingredients.
Indo-Chinese cuisine in hotel industry uses MSG(or Ajinomoto) and cornflour in their recipes.However,some people are allergic to it.Others may want to avoid it due to dietary restrictions.Another issue,deep fried and low quality oil in markets.
