Since then her blog, now retired, lives on in Tara’s award-winning cookbook of the same name and in her food writing which you will find regularly in The Globe and Mail, Epicurious and more. I’ve always been awed by Tara’s culinary range from her show stopping cakes to inventive mains that pay tribute to international flavors – her perfect chocolate chip cookies and chaat tostadas are staples in our home.⠀I went...

The rich creamy korma sauce adds a depth of velvety textures and flavors while the sweet mango chutney provides a delightful counterpart. Sometimes, I fold in chopped hard-boiled eggs and a few pickled roasted bell peppers.
