“I once had amazing jambalaya at a restaurant and ventured to make my own version at home. This is always a huge hit and you can make it as mild or spicy as you like. The garlic yogurt is great for cooling it down a bit and compliments the jambalaya perfectly. Chicken can also be used in this recipe. Delicious!”
