Spicy red curry clams, heat up this autumn.
Around 1 month ago, my friend travelled to India and my gifts were large bags of curry and other yummy food. I guess my foodie reputation has been well-known. Although curry is not native to Chinese people, you cannot image how much we love it. Curry beef with potatoes has been one of the top popular dishes in China.
The red curry powder is packaged in plain plastic bags but it turns out to be quite yummy especially with fresh coriander.
