“While the coconut milk in this dish might given the impression of this being a Southeast Asian dish, it actually originates in the North Indian state of Bengal where it is a popular dish. This recipe is versatile in that, if you are concerned about the high fat content in coconut milk, you may substitute half the quantity by using ricotta cheese instead.”
