Re: Indian Recipes.....by Suresh Nair

Thx for all the lovely (veg) recipes, Suresh. I have a feeling my kitchen will often smell of wonderful Indian spices this winter  big_smile

Hey Stefanie, made your butter chicken before, rumour has it it was great! Also made the Palak paneer dish you posted for me once - everything was great! I make curries very often and try to "infect" as many people as possible with my love for curries  big_smile . Around here, not many cook Indian (or Asian for that matter) so it's definitely quite a project. Cheers again!
