“I spent a considerable of time in the Fijian Islands and fell in love with the type of food the "Indians" (East Indians) cooked. Most of their soups were spicy hot, but very tasty. I was not able to get their recipes, so I developed my own. This is one of my East Indian recipes that is enjoyed by all of our East Indian friends.”
