“I developed this recipe after spending two months of holiday time in Fiji. Fell in love with the Indian style of cooking. The Chefs would not give me details as to how they made their recipes, except to tell me, add a little of this and a little of that to suit your taste. This recipe is not overpowering and has a delightful flavor.”
