This is made on every auspicious occasion and is easy to make. I have been trying to get one of my friends to get interested in cooking and must say this dish was easy to make for her as well, who gets into the kitchen only after a lot of persuasion. She has sent the pics and cant stop raving about how well she cooked it.
