My Wok Is My New Bae
I love my new wok. It has taken five years of steely restraint. Of looking and walking away, resisting the seductive call of the shiny and new.
Maybe I've been hiding under a rock, but I've never heard of megastone pans before.
Since my curry leaf plant has been sprouting away gleefully, I've decided to give it a little trim and create a dish inspired by it.
This is my Meatless Monday dish, for 2 pax.
