I find cooking so relaxing...it is creative, it is easy and good to fill your stomach with something nice....so we started the day with spicey eggs [I already gave you the recipe on 7 September, 2010]....try them once and you will crave them forever!
No way I begged my way into the kitchen and helped create magic.....although whilst cooking it I was worried about the amount of chillis; thinking I would embarass myself and not be able to eat things.....something happens, I think the coconut milk acts as a modifying force....anyway this food is spicy but not burn your mouth our!
Use any firm fish steaks...don't know the name of what we get here in India....it is firm and white, I have used salmon steaks when in UKand they were great as well.
