Our Thanksgiving Tradition: Pie From Malai Kitchen

by Steven Doyle

I have always been enamored by the incredible dishes at Malai Kitchen in West Village in Uptown Dallas, but wanted to share what was probably the best part of any of the meals I have had there – the coconut pie.

We like to run this recipe every year now in hopes one of you will invite me for a slice!  Continue reading
