Last week was an eventful week, with preparations for the varamahalakshmi festival. It is one the festivals I love to celebrate with lot of decorations and elaborate food. We celebrate by inviting all my dear family and friends for dinner. During my childhood, my mom always invited family over during all the festivals. We celebrated as one big family.. One of the curries I made was using soy beans.. This mild ginger flavored curry was a hit, loved by all my guests.. It is very simple curry that can be relished by everyone..
