A couple of years ago, in a room full of at least 100 people at a blogging conference, I found myself brought to tears (of the inspiring sort) listening to Monica Bhide's presentation. It wound up being my favorite portion of the entire conference, and I was so happy to have the chance to meet Monica and chat with her briefly later that day.
I've been a fan of hers ever since, following her on twitter and reading her website, so I was thrilled to hear that she released her first novel...a food lovers novel, at that...this month. I will have it in my hands shortly and am looking forward to reading it and sharing a dish inspired by it.
Until then, in anticipation of Karma and the Art of Butter Chicken, please enjoy this story about and recipe for butter chicken from Monica Bhide.
