  1. Dear Soumya
    Thanks for following my blog...although I am off blog these days, could not help looking at your blog. Simply great! Will read one by one.
    This recipe I am going to try soon. I take note that you have used chopped garlic and ginger, and not the paste. The chopped one makes all the difference.
    Will be back to learn more recipes.
    Have a great week a ahead
