The door is open dear...pls come in! Hehe...:)Delete

Thanks Ivy! :)Delete
must try this sumtime soon..i never knew what garam masala is until i accidentally met with it last week when i was wandering at Mydin Hypermarket...last week i cooked Masala Lamb and it turn out to be family's fav!ReplyDelete
Hi dear! Garam Masala is a combination powder of few spices used to enhance any dish..especially chicken and mutton curries. Am sure your Masala Lamb was a hit! Let me know once you've tried this ya :)))Delete
Was just wondering if I don't want to use cocnut milk, can I substitute it with evaporated milk?
I'm afraid to advise on that as I never tried this dish with evaporated milk before. You may give it a try. :)
After seeing your pictures, who will say no to prawns, even a vegetarian will definitely drool here..Yummy masala.ReplyDelete
That's great compliment from a wonderful cook like you! :) Thank you sis.Delete

Hi tried this recipe today. I followed it to the letter. Unfortunately it wasn't that fab. Either my fish curry power or prawns did not do justice to the masala. Added some stock to fix it. It tasted much betta then. I wldnt make this again tho. As much as all these pple who comment r really lovely and kind it wld be nice if they also give feedback upon tryin out the recipe. Thank you for sharing the recipe nonetheless.ReplyDelete
Hello Anon...thanks for trying the recipe. Sorry it didn't work out for you. I have received few feedbacks on this recipe and they've all loved it. Have a great weekend.Delete
