During my college years I ate out at PF Changs quite often and their famous lettuce wraps with mushrooms and fried things on top was one of the dishes that felt reasonably healthier.

So this is my recreation with a few twists – a sweet and sour sauce cooked with mushrooms and sprouts and topped with crushed peanuts and AL Chipino Bollywood Sweet + Sour tortilla chips. The filling is placed into a purple cabbage bowl and you can just neatly wrap it up in your fingers like a makeshift spring roll and dip it into the sauce and enjoy.

There is freshness from the raw cabbage, crunch from the tortilla chips and softness from the lovely mushrooms. A true delight!
