Hi Chef! I ran across your website, I think through Pinterest. My wife and I love Indian foods but only at restaurants but your website / YouTube videos gave us the confidence to try cooking our own. Success! We cooked Malai Kofta and the Veg Pulao.

Chef, don't you think that curry leaves sometimes have a similar aroma to green bell pepper?

I spent over 500 already. I blame vahchef. I'm like one of 12 white guys in new york city who has a full stock of urad dal, hing, dried fenugreek leaves, and a billion different masala powders and other specialty ingredients.
