Suma teaching me how to make Chicken Curry
My sweet friend Suma is a wonderful cook. She bakes, tries out all kind of recipes and makes the best lasagna I've ever tasted. I especially love the spicy Indian food she makes. For some time now, she has promised to show me how to make some of the traditional Indian dishes she and her family have enjoyed for generations. So last Saturday night Suma honored us with a wonderful dinner that included chicken curry, fried catfish, spicy cauliflower, lentil stew and rice. So many delicious dishes, I hope that I'm not forgetting anything.
We sauteed the onions after the mustard seeds
popped in the dutch oven.
