Hey, this dish looks so delish :0)
Yoghurt curry is alway a nice one. You are adding lots of very fragrant sweetish spices, this must have been a feast for eyes and nose, particularly. Thanx for sharing ...

I never expected this much delicious dish in Arabic cuisine. I only knew that Arab don't eat spicy foods.
