Thank you for sharing your curry with us. I found it a bit difficult to understand the amount of spices to use but I used what I had and cooked a pretty good biryani last night. Thank you

I appreciate the efforts to bring us this cooking program but I found it difficult to follow along, partly due to language, some due to unfamiliar products to me (without explanation) and part because explanation was unclear to me. I appreciated their willingness to bring us into their home and show us around. Always so interesting to see how others live. Although I was a bit confused, I’m going to make this dish at home but will probably consult an Indian cookbook so things are clearer. Applaud those who were cooking along...hopefully it was clearer to you than myself. Has to be difficult to attempt such a tour when it’s not what you are used to doing, but know they are trying to make an honest living. Thank you.
