This is a green,green creamy dish with a fusion of roasted coconut,cashew……This dish can be served with rotis,
wraps,and even rice .
My menu today was with carrot- omelette cummin seed rice.The creamy,coconutty taste was good to go with this
The tint of the green was looking lovely and appetising .The greens were freshly plucked from my culinary patch,and
that enhanced the taste.
