I am finally adding this recipe to my blog. I have made it so many times, but somehow it just doesn't get here.......
The first time I made this, was for a poker night dinner.served it with veg pulao.I would have used regular onions, for the gravy but I am glad I did not. I had a packet of fried onions and I used those instead. And trust me, that is what makes this dish simply mouthwatering. Serve it with poori, pulao, naan or just with bread. I always make a little extra, cause my husband enjoys it more the next day.Made it a couple of weeks back, and managed to take pictures.
