This is the simplest and shortest recipe that can give you consistent taste every time.Although, it would be easier if there was a video for this. Thanks to Sanjay for all these nice and easy recipes. If I am making something for the first time i prefer using Vahrehvah recipe. I have recommended to so many of my friends as well..Now they are using Vahrehvah for every recipe.
Thanks once again....
