    lynnski / LA's Note:

    This dish is usually made very hot in Bhutan, however when I make it it's with jalapenos and fewer chilies. Adjust to your own taste. The cheese used in Bhutan is Churpi, which is a cross between farmer's cheese and feta. Since it is not widely available, feta is substituted in this recipe. This unusual soup-like curry is rich and warming on a cool day. Recipe adapted from the book, "Mangoes and Curry Leaves " by the team of Alford and Duguid.

      This is fantastic. I used Mozzarella as cheese substitute for the Churpi and a little bid of ginger which gives even more flavour.
