From the Chef: “In the late 1990s, I was flown from London, England to New Delhi to help transform a French restaurant into an Italian restaurant. The company I worked for owned a variety of ethnic restaurants: Szechuan, Traditional Indian and even Mexican. I spent time in each location, learning new techniques from all of the chefs. The dish below is reminiscent of some of the unique Indian flavours I discovered while I was there.”
