I have cooked this several times. It is fun to make and everyone likes it. I actually use only half the methi suggested as I think it can be a bit overwhelming. Thanks for the great recipe.
This was really easy to make and so tasty. I accidentally added turmeric twice so a bit yellow but didn't spoil it!
