  10. I see that you don't add any red chili which is why the color is so diff from what I make. The photos are absolutely gorgeous.. the dark mood with the green tint and that rustic card .. gorgeous!

  11. WOW! What exquisite photos! They are BEAUTIFUL to look at. What kind of camera do you use? Also did you have additional lighting set up to capture the depth of color?

  15. Is the nutmeg supposed to be nos as well? And does that mean one whole nutmeg? I think that is what nos means?

  16. I'm very motivated to try it!

    Have still some questions though:

    Cardamom pods, Star anise:
    > roasting the whole pods, or take out seeds?

    Thanks for advice!
