  1. Honestly, I didn’t think much of this simple recipe but when I finally convinced myself to cook and it came out really really, I mean really good. Just a few simple blend of spices and patience is the key. I must add that I ended up adding a couple of tbs of churned dahi to it that made it even better. Thank you Ranveer!
