I’ve had the privilege of sampling some amazing food from many different countries all over the world; but one dish in particular has always stood
The French who colonized the Pondicherry area of eastern India took a liking to the local flavours and made this version their own. A larger-than-usual leaning towards dried onion and garlic, and the freshness of curry leaves, makes this blend mild and a little sweet.
