Recipe: Achari Karhai

I tried this amazing recipe today that I changed according to my taste and gave it a tangy twist! I added Shangrila Pickle Paste in it and it turned out so good! It gave it this punch of flavour and aroma that I wish I could share in this post! I’ll just share a photo for now until technology allows us to smell food online and share and download it also! Hey! A foodie can dream, right? ^_^

Anyhoo…let’s jump right into it!
