    Chef #1270709's Note:

    This dish is a Classic Sindhi dish which everybody loves including vegetarians. Most of Sindhi people crave for this dish and miss it if not served, so much that I remember a famous top Bollywood Sindhi Actress got married to a Punjabi and I remember reading in the magazine that she was complaining that she didn't eat Saibhaji in a long time as her Husbands Punjabi family did not make this dish.Another short my family story-I was married to an Italian-American girl,she loved this dish too also my children who were born in USA and now are married to Irish-American girls,they love this dish very much,I am surprised (Specially) at my younger son Prem for loving this dish as he is a Meat and Potatoes guy.Why dont you try it and let me know.
