    Charishma_Ramchandani's Note:

    This is our family favourite and a regular in the weekends at home. Best served with Brown rice pulao (recipe posted separately). I learnt this from our family chef, Subru uncle when I was a teenager. Follow the recipe to the 'T' to have a delicious outcome at the end. Enjoy!
