Indian Treats

I shared my desire to learn how to prepare Indian food and soon after I found a lovely woman who is showing the ways of her Indian kitchen.  I don;t know the names of many things yet, but I want to share how it looks.

Churrasco a moda da Conchita.

Butter, fresh garlic, and piri piri.

It was amazing. The chicken is seasoned beforehand, and brushed with the butter paste as it cooks on the BBQ.

Fresh Tomatoes

Fresh tomatoes make for a superb tomato sauce.
