This recipe made me wanna go back to India. Such a beautiful country with incredible flavours. Thank you for this recipe, definitely keeping it and trying it soon!
This looks like a great new dish to try with my family. We are eating out less and cooking at home more, but we certainly miss the different types of foods that we were getting at our favorite places. This will help us have a take out fake out night!
This is such a well explained recipe and your images are so good. I am totally intrigued. Will definitely make it.
