Chicken Tikka Zucchini Meatball Curry!!

On a cold, dreary and rainy Carlisle day I decided to warm myself up with something unique, by mixing ingredients one would not normally put together.

Ashely made this Okra the other day that was so so good. I didn’t expect much from the look, but oh my god it was so good. There was something about the sauce she made. Fatema stopped by late at night. There was no Okra left for her unfortunately, but she ate the whole left…

Hott just like Soo for her birthday!
