Thai Chana Curry

This curry was prepared by my daughter Sanju sometime back . I had shared the recipe with my friends and they keep preparing it often.We all love this dish a lot. Thai dishes are a favourite at home. I have some stepwise pictures which I will share as of now and will edit with the remaining pictures soon when I prepare it again. I do not have proper measurements of this recipe. However I have mentioned the measurements randomly which I do to most of my posts.. I usually go with the eyeball measurements so did Sanju. You may adjust the flavours according to your tastebuds.
