Enthused by what she learnt to make it was only natural that our next meet featured some of the dishes you are about to see here.
For the uninitiated to the varied and robust cuisine of India, all I can say is, DO YOURSELF A FAVOUR AND TRY IT! Your life will never be the same.

CookEl: Marathi Spinach Soup
A Kurma Dasa recipe, this was luxuriously creamy and subtly spiced.
CookA: Cucumber Raita
CookEl: Wholemeal Roti.
Nutty, slightly chewy and downright delicious.
The sum of its parts..
CookB: Butter Chicken, Pumpkin Tarkari, Lamb Rogan Josh
The Indians do like a tooth-achingly sweet, treat.
