    Charishma_Ramchandani's Note:

    This is my creation and we make it every Thursday at my apartment here in Orlando, FL. My dad enjoys it so much and surprisingly enough, so does my Brother! I love it too and always serve it with my "Dad's Half-way Sindhi and half-way yellow rice recipe (posted separately) and plain yogurt on the side!
