My family loved this dish. Only change I made-- used raw, cubed potatoes and cooked them along with the softened onions. The taste was great. I am making this often, since my husband asks for it.

i just came across ur website n tried a couple of dishes that u have on the video demos.i cant believe they turned out so good that my family loved them.
one of it is ras malai that i wanted to make the way u show it is so encouraging to try out.
i already made it twice in 2 weeks n its the best i have ever eaten. the other one is rava dosa.i feel so great. i myself am a good cook thats what my family says haha.i would also like to share some of my recipes with u in future. some healthy and tasty dishes. thanks for the great recipes again.
