Today my mom chose to make this recipe for my post-college meal, and the only thing I loved more than its taste was her thoughtfulness in selecting something that was fresh, healthy, nutritious, non-greasy... just the way I love my food! Thanks Mom! Note: This is from "Summer Cookery" by Sushma Shourie. Prep. time includes chilling time.
