Thanks a lot for every recipe on your lovely website. the most beneficial for me was the butter chicken. My english and Indian friends just got crazy about my cooking and techniques used for cooking. Your step by step guidance is the most helpful. Love you chef. I will be posting a recipe on your website hope you try it out. its a balsamic vinegar salad with chicken. Thanks again.
