"I live in New Delhi, India. I am a stay-at-home grandmom. I spend a fair amount of time on the net....and while surfing for a recipe ran into this site. After that; this is it....a one-stop station for every kind of recipe. I have no favourite cookbook but love collecting recipes from any source. I play a lot of scrabble (Any potential scrabblers out there?!) and hate cooking in summers. Temperatures run into the 40 degrees cent. range and our kitchens are not airconditioned!! I love travelling and, given a chance, would take a month long luxury cruise which touched exotic ports! Aaaahhh....pure bliss!!!!"

    This was GREAT! I made this for dinner last night. I did add a tbsp. of kasoori methi(crushed between my palms). The chaat masala in this is the best part of the recipe. It was very nice and mom,dad and me liked it alot. Thank you so much for helping me out with this recipe. Will make it often now on:)
