This is one recipe which I prepared as it is my husband's favorite. I found out the recipe from my cousin and made it recently and since then its been made regularly in my kitchen. It goes really well with non-vegetarian dishes as sides and is tasty. Do try this recipe and give a different and tangy taste to your tastebuds.
