A couple of my colleagues are from India and love to share their way of cooking with me. I am always fascinated by the large variety of different flavors and spices. I am intrigued by the way every bit of a plant is used and almost nothing is thrown away. This curry is one of our most favorite dishes!


Don’t you love the intense orange colors in this dish? Looks amazing and tastes wonderful!
