A Happy Meal

P.S:- The curry was supposed to look a little more brownish,I think it may be because of the soya sauce.I didn’t have dark soya sauce and so i just used the light one(increased the quantity to 3 tbsps),which I had.

    there is a different between dark soya sauce and light soya sauce. Increase th amount does not increase the darkness. You cannot subsitute one for the other.
