I’ve resumed making cooking videos and had made a few videos last weekend. Since, I do everything by myself (shooting, editing, cooking, talking etc) after shooting one video I’ll be seen drained out of energy; Phew! However, I love making videos and to show how to make delicious food, that’s my motivation. Hopefully, I can make more videos.

Here is a stew or curry made with kidney beans, peas and chicken, it’s a highly nutritious dish and tastes fantastic. I loved the bite of the beans, peas and also the chicken from one dish. The addition of peas gave this curry a nice flavor. Easy yet delicious stew that can be served with rice or rotis.
