Indian Fare

After hearing of what my dear husband is capable of in the kitchen, my Mum specially requested that he cook one night while she was visiting. He willingly obliged and we were in for a real treat!

As usual, we had no idea of what was on the menu .....

What a feast was had that night!

He made Chicken Makhanwala, a butter chicken recipe that is extremely popular in North India... and now in our home too! The flavours are just incredible .... ginger, garlic, cinnamon, chili, garam masala, coriander and more all in a tomato and yoghurt curried sauce. He served it with home-made naan bread.

To quench our thirst, he served Lassi ... a yoghurt drink made with crushed ice and almonds.
The meal reminded me of our time spent living in Dar es Salaam where we first got to try all sorts of food we had never eaten before. There were some fine Indian restaurants there.
I look forward to the next meal my hubby will surprise us with!
