Hubs is somewhat of an amateur master chef; he absolutely loves cooking special creative dishes for us. We have quite the selection of spices already so there really was only a few ingredients he had to make a trip to the grocery store for but for yourself, if you plan on trying a new recipe just plan ahead to have everything on hand when you are ready. Normally he would make a full dinner spread but he decided Spinach Mango Curry with a side of sliced hard boiled egg would be the perfect light lunch. The dish was very enjoyable having a sweet taste from the mango with a little kick of spice. If this is the first time you are trying East Indian food, this would be a great dish to try.
