“A friend of mine from college helped me make this dish, although I was looking for something more spicier, this turned out to be very tasty. He knew I liked curries and he being from Pakistan - who better to teach me. Now every time I make this dish I remember my good friend Ahsad Khan, God rest his soul, he passed away in 94.”
