This recipe is courtesy of Chef Ami Bonen. I can imagine that some of the readers will think: “Coconut milk—nah, not something I use…& all those spices..definitely not something I have in my pantry.” I’m not here to convince, but if you enjoy going out to eat and love tasting foods from different cultures, here is an easy recipe to start with. It’s creamy and has the full flavors you’d experience eating in fusion restaurant while wondering what made the dish so special.
