  • Hello Maya:

    What are the names of the other preparations that appear in the photograph? I refer to the prawn curry and the dark beans dish.

    Would you mind naming such accompanying dishes in your photographs in future posts?


      • Well, Maya, I am having a hard time holding back from knowing what the names of those other dishes in the photograph are — presume you list the recipes for them here.

        Am I permitted to know them, unless I am asking to violate the terms and conditions of your blog?!
