Economical Indian Food
Sure I love fine dining. If you say you don’t, I’m skeptical. My fave Indian Joint is so pricey that after I have a drink, entree and app or dessert, my bill alone is $50-60. Reeedonkulous!
I think my first ever stab at Indian food was a success. Considering that it must’ve cost me less than $10? It should win an award or something
