loved it.. thanks a lot Hina for sharing this recipe. I want to tell you that i am always paranoid about cooking this as i never ever get it right, but this time I followed your recipe to the T and bingo! It turned out great!

I just add a dab of desi ghee (while adding the garam masala at the end) and my husband loves it even more! Ans a pinch of sugar - the typical bong practice! :) Thanks again
