andhra chicken curry

andhra chicken curry

I was introduced to this recipe by my ex-Indian neighbour. We used to share food with each other and I learned how to make a number of Indian dishes from her. I have to say that though I used the same recipe she passed to me, the results were slightly different. I wasn’t able to recreate the same taste and gravy consistency. I even used the same ingredients! Alas, this curry is delicious with rice but more so with noodles (in my opinion). Boil up some somen noodles, ladle on some curry and chicken and enjoy!

Amazon Store Now Open

So the blog now has an Amazon store (SHOP link on top bar). I’ve listed all, if not most of the stuff I talk about on the blog. I’ve also listed other products I’ve used or would have used instead. Hopefully it will make your Amazon shopping experience a lot faster. Stuff I list, but not in the store is not available on Amazon.com but the links are in the respective posts. Let me know if I’ve missed out anything. Happy shopping!

 

 

turkey meatloaf

turkey meatloaf

The hubs was really skeptical and unenthusiastic when I told him I was making turkey meatloaf for dinner. For one thing, I have never bought ground turkey in my life so this was going to be an experiment. But Laura (from Laura in the Kitchen) convinced me that this was worth trying. On a side note, I do not know Laura Vitale personally, I am just one of her 2 million plus subscribers on YouTube. :p
