  8. You bet me today in the comments. I am so tight up with my work which I have a deadline to meet. I like the idea, the garlic being the main ingredient for a curry. Perfect on the days we have prayers or when we need a break from meat. That is a sparkling curry and yes to garlic for health reasons.
