This is a recipe learnt from my MIL. But still I didn't get any appreciation from my hubby dear. Every time I try it, he used to say "It doesn't match my mother's preparation". I don't know, i do the same way, as she tells. I liked, hence posting it here. You please try ti and let me know, whether its good or not ;)
