As I described the recipe the shop owner goes omg my mouth is watering! At the checkout stand I saw Your BOOOK! Letting the shop owner know it was you who taught me, she goes AH she's lived in this town for 18+ years! Needless to say, I look forward to meeting you and taking some classes! Thank you so much for such a simple and wonderful video!

  5. Gday! Love your videos and has inspired me to do more indian cooking. In this recipe the chicken looks to be around 2 kg cause im in tokyo and chicken are no bigger than 1kg. Is that about right?

  6. Hi what is Marsala and also why do you use yogurt and if what type of yogurt do you use to use Greek yogurt plain Greek yogurt can you use coconut milk instead. Does the yogurt give it a sour taste. And where do you buy to Marcela I ain't never seen it in the store. Thank you looks good though
