How To Make Chingri Malai Curry (An Indian Recipe)

I had the opportunity to eat Indian food a few weeks back. Although I can’t remember the names of everything, I definitely remember the colors and tastes of the foods. Even the desserts were colorful. Made me think that something like that would be perfect for children and adults who find it difficult to eat bland looking foods. It would also be perfect for those who are always looking to try new things in the kitchen.

So, guess what? We’d be learning how to make a number of Indian foods. These recipes are from people and friends that I’ve worked with. And I hope you find these recipes as interesting as I did.
