Without a doubt, one of my favorite dishes...especially when served with a salad of spicy greens and a delicious glass of chilled Falanghina!

Too, my very first memory of Chaiwalla was with Suvir and watching him swell with joy as we walked in to see Mary and her team serving up delicious bites across a crowded room...and of course as he gazed at the long line of cakes, and pies, and other tasty sweets that lined one whole wall. We sat for hours nibbling and laughing...and teasing!

Suvir: this sounds amazing; I want to make it right away. However, since my heart surgery and stroke, I'm now gluten-free; can my gluten-free flower be substituted cup for cup?
Hope all is well; your picture looks amazing! Mark & I miss you.
Friend, please take good care,


Marie, I am glad you are post all that stuff. Sorry that I am only now finding out about these things. Have not tried cup for cup, will you and let me know?
Mark and you will have to come visit us in India. Charlie and I would LOVE to see you and host you.
Glad you like this. I promise you that it will taste great
