    Hi Preethi,

    Thanks so much for the wonderful recipe. All the ingredients were readily available at Indian stores. I cooked for the first time while my wife was late from work. The way you posted with pictures at every step, it was so easy for me to follow thru with my laptop next to the stove:) The pictures really helped me to figure out if the onions and capsicum were cooked.(I normally end-up burning everything) My wife was delighted coming home tired. Thanks so much.
