I have a confession to make. And a good one at that. I loooove Indian Curries. Add coconut milk to it, that becomes undoubtedly my favorite. Blame it on my South-Indian genes, but that’s my one true love.
I called up Mom a couple of days back to ask what I should be cooking for the letter I. I honestly didn’t expect that she would come up with this recipe. All she said was to give it a shot.
I did and I absolutely adored it.
It is quite similar to the Kerala Chicken Stew. The fried shallots, along with a tinge of spices and coconut milk brings out the delicious flavour of the dish.
The aroma fills the kitchen and boy oh boy, you are surely in for a treat. And the beautiful color- that’s from turmeric.
