This recipe is for one of my signature dishes at dinner parties as it was a good Indianized Western dish that complemented traditional Indian dishes. I had written this in my son Milind’s recipe book when he left to study in the US. He continued the tradition by making this at his dinner parties and my daughter-in-law Anna enjoys this dish very much.
