Indian Valentine's Dinner

Spicy Valentine’s Day Dinner

I love Indian food, I find it enticing and intimate. There is something about the warmth in the spices and the general atmosphere that it evokes – its perfect for a spicy Valentine’s Day dinner!

This simple, quick Korma dish is mild and made without meat so anyone can enjoy it.  The spices are tasty but actually quite mellow making it the perfect valentine’s meal for even the pickiest love in your life. Follow with a romantic dessert, like as Pavlova or Chocolate Raspberry Truffles.
