    Oh, this is just to swoon over!!! I would love to taste it right now. I found you at my friend Santosh. I'm Sicilian and my husband is Japanese, we lived in India for 10 years. My daughter and I just love Indian food and we miss New Delhi so much. I'll tell my daughter (hungrycaramella.blogspot.com) to follow you, she loves caramel … as you can see from the name:) I'm following you from Rome, we're here on holiday but we live in Sicily.
