CHICKEN THORAN by Nimmi @ Adorable Life (a guest post)

When I was making a draft for the announcement of the guest post, I’d like to mention that one of the requirements was a dish from your home country. But I don’t know why I changed my mind – maybe in order not to limit your choices.

 When Nimmi told me that she wanted to bring a dish from Kerala, I gladly said that would be great.

 Nimmi blogs from Adorable Life. She’s such a sweetheart and she always welcomes you with a smile and warm messages. We met each other during FF. (So thankful of Angie for the FF.) Aside from being passionate about food, she’s also crafty and loves to travel. (Could you take me with you some other time, Nimmi?) 😀

Okay, I will stop talking now as Nimmi will start feeding you with her delicious treats –
