If there is one dish I’m super proud of cooking, that is the Filipino Shrimp Curry. This recipe that I adapted from Panlasang Pinoy is the bomb! It’s legit curry, tasted like it came from an Indian restaurant!
I will make sure to cook this if I’ll have friends around. It’s difficult to experiment if we’re feeding other people, haha!
