If time is a big factor to deal with, when you feel like making a dish like this... then I Vouch on this recipe as it was not just so quick to make but also I used almost 1/4 of the ghee that I would normally use.. and well even after all this... it tasted spot on.. I made it for a dinner i hosted, and it was a hit... thank you...
