Indian night turned out to be our best one yet. It took us every bit of two hours to put it all together (with a lot of help from our special guest, Jason). But it paid off.
We put blood, sweat, and tears into this (cheese burns, spicy mangoes, onions, respectively). And we ate until it hurt. Or I did, at least. And then we had cheesecake.
Food Fact from Jenny:
I’ve always loved Indian food and the spices used. Chilli is the most widely used spice in India. [source]
