This tiki is one of the best I have tasted... From the time I ate a kebab in a 5 star restaurant with yam, I was wondering how to do it. With dal, this is a healthy recipe. Tarla dalal site just has anything and everything one can cook... For a working women like me, post marriage , this site would not only help in making a variety of foods, but also in picking recipes based on quick or pregnancy or diabetic...it brings smiles and appreciations when you bring yummy platter even for diabetic people! Love this site!
