The weather in Melbourne, Australia, is famous for its unpredictability. It is said to have four seasons in one day! Sometimes it is absolutely true. Our summer is weird. It can be cold but it can be scorching hot. The temperature can easily go over 40℃. I don’t like hot weather as I lose energy to do anything. This is a perfect dish to have on such a hot day.
