Recently, I asked on instagram, if people in my network , would like me to share recipes of my own vegan and healthy food experiments and the response was overwhelmingly positive. So, here goes the first most requested recipe, which is inspired by a recipe shared by Rabbit and Wolves. I made couple of changes and only used fresh ingredients.

Satiate Your Vegan Indian Cravings in Stockholm @ Masala Masala

Eating Indian food is the last thing on anyone's mind while travelling to Sweden. However, being not exactly a fan of Indian eateries in Germany, I do look out for Nicer Indian restaurants when travelling elsewhere in Europe.
