Not only that I could use my little garden this time for photograph, I can also use this beautiful plates. I already own them for a while and did not really know where they could be suitable. But here I have made a good choice I think. With the charm of Arabian Nights this plates fits wonderfully to this coconut kofta with fresh pepper salad . And everything fresh from the grill. This delicious minted yoghurt sauce with some hot chili ist just stunning . All these exotic North African flavors and this coconut graters. I think it’s gorgeous. Simply delicious.
