I couldn't resist making this from Monica Bhide's Modern Spice--love the photos because of the colors or red chile peppers and green curry leaves...Family loved it...but look at the fryer mess I'm left with ....what's up with that? I used good plain yogurt, but I think that is what turned the fryer into a gooey mess...oh, well: worth it. Oh, and we had Monica's Spiced roasted cauliflower with this--enormous hit. More to come, but for now: photos.
The ingredients were abstract art in a bowl:
The finished chicken was beautiful with mustard seeds, red chiles minced fine and green curry leaves.
Of COURSE we had naan--brushed with a bit of butter, just as Monica recommends (I found myself wishing I'd bought a jar of ghee).
Here is the mess. I confess. It is still on my counter (soaking). Oh well...it was worth it.
