Today, my daughter made a fool of me by pretending she wants to discontinue her piano class. I was angry and told her that how much money I have spent on the piano bought for her, bla bla….And then she laughed at me said “ Mom, Happy April Fool’s Day “ , sigh, I was fooled by her, hahaha…
Come back to the dish that I want to share with you today, I always like Mamak style (Indian Muslims ) of fried chicken, recently I found a really good and yummy recipe, and this fried chicken is well received by my family. This recipe is really good, I’m not fooling you wor, hahaha..
-Curry leaves, cumin seed, aniseed and coriander seed
