Dish description

Easter is celebrated all over the world and even if only 2.5% of the Indian population are Christian, many people still celebrate Easter in India as Good Friday and Easter Monday are bank holidays.  The celebration was brought to India by the British and some areas of the country are well-known for their Easter celebrations including Mumbai, Goa and the Northeastern states.

    Try using Curry SALSA, or Red Thai curry paste instead of salsa and maybe you end up with a curry dish!
