Spicy Indian Style Meatballs

   When it comes to finger food, Indian cuisine is perfect. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that you traditionally eat Indian food with…your fingers! Ha, that was my one corny joke I’m allowed on this blog. I promise, no more 🙂

Indian Curried Chicken and Rice (Biryani)
