Ratatouille or Rat-a-tat-touille?
Ratatouille Niçoise is a celebrated and traditional vegetarian French stew. My husband during his stay at France has fond memories of it, thanks to having to eat only that most of the days due to minimal vegetarian dishes!:) I love it for the simplicity, for the vibrant color and uncomplicated taste.Indians can totally relate to it, in the sense, the method, the taste are not completely new to us, thanks to our own style of cooking.
