    Looks appetising! I like that there's coconut cream in it, it adds up this distinct taste.. I've never tried this one but I've had other dishes with coconut cream in them, and I love it! I'll sure give this a try. Thanks for sharing, if you don't mind I want to share this to other Foodista readers as well. Just add the foodista widget for shallots to the end of this post and it's all set, Thanks!
