    • Hi.

      Thanks for your comments on this recipe.
      This is a very versatile dish that is had in many different ways. It is a one-pot meal that many have as a main with a side of pickles and papads (indian spiced wafers). However, some have it as a side, and some may even choose to end their main meal with a small portion of it.
      Will definitely go thru the link that you have sent.
