  3. Hi Maria,
    I’ve come to ur site quite accidently when i was searching for a shrimp roast.. n now i’m a big fan of urs… Today I was very much bored to cook a normal chicken curry, as I wanted something different. First I thought of ur Malabar chicken curry, but there was no grated cocunut… so dropped the plan… again going back to the same old recipie… :9 no, then while searching found this… i tried it….
    I was not having tomato puree, but i added chopped tomatoes n waited to get it completely mixed…

    finally it turn out great… I was so happy that i had a different taste, my mom liked it, my hubby is like wooow…. then i decide, yeah, though I was a silent follower  of ur site uptill now, this is the time to reveal myself and congratulate u….

    I like ur passion for cooking, the way u present it and how it is turning out when i try preparing them ;) yeah good going… keep it up, ur wonderful work..
