When I started to write this recipe my mind rushed to my days in Calcutta in 1955-56. I had just moved from Karwar after getting married, did not know any cooking and did not eat non-vegetarian food. Some of my friends (Bollu Warriar and Taru Dhurandhar) came to my rescue and taught me cooking and several meat dishes. This recipe is from Taru, who was a dear family friend and a very good cook. It is simple to make and is very tasty.
