#KitchenTales Part 3: The BombayFoodies version of English Stew

People around the world have been influenced by TV shows and have made food on the basis of the idea of the show; for example the Blue Crystal Meth in Breaking Bad has been made with sugar crystals to look like real crystal meth. People try and make dishes that have been made on all the Masterchefs from around the world and we also at the Bombay Foodies have been inspired by Downtown Abbey and have made our version of English Stew. Mrs Patmore or in this case our very own Foodie who got this recipe from her mother added a few tweaks and twists and is now sharing it with all of us. Just the way the entire show is shot and the importance they have given to the food, we at Bombay Foodies with the help of our very own Foodie, present the Downtown Abbey inspired Chicken Stew!!
