Sabz deewani handi!


I am in love with this veg. these day. Whenever we go out for dinner this is a “must to order” dish from my side. So I thought why not learn it and as they say “jab kisi cheez ko poori…” etc etc that Shahrukh Khan dialogue in Om Shanti Om. I was having my lunch and was watching TV and then suddenly some chef came and started showing the recipe of deewani handi. Not to mention, I jumped out and noted down the recipe. I gathered all the ingredients and made it the next day itself. It came out really well and as good as the restaurant one..eeeee.. 😀
