Oh gosh, this is the most delicious dried curry ribs I have ever cooked till date. I bought this cookbook just a few days ago and I knew I had to tried it out ! Wasting no time , I cooked it for our dinner this evening . I tweaked it a bit...opt out the galangal and instead added in turmeric leaves.
Boy, wasn't I thrilled at the end results... succulent ribs coated with a layer of luscious aromatic curry. I enjoyed seeing the way WB tucks in the ribs. A keeper for sure and I will surely cook this dish again . I am sure my sons and daughters would love this ! WB will pester me to cook this again and I don't mind as the ingredients are easily obtainable and easy to whip up unlike other curries which entails a lot of preparation.
