The thanks goes to:
I tasted this recipe in my Tution teachers home when I was in my 1st std. I was invited for lunch on one sunday by my tution teacher. Her name is Banu. Banu miss's mom was a great cook. I dont know much about other recipes that she prepares. But just this Curry with potato fry became my delicacy after I ever tasted. I can never forget the taste. And some how managed to get the recipe from else where. I have tried numerous experiments and the final product is here now...
Where ever she is... I dont have any contacts with her since I was in my 4th Std, when ever I prepare this curry I always remember about Banu miss and her mom. Thanks miss for this recipe. Because of your mom I was able to explore and find out the taste and could share with others as well.
