  15. Hi Aarthi,
    Love your presentations. Your recipes are superb. Also can you tell me where to get those terra cotta cooking pots?

  16. Thanks for sharing the recipe it came out well

  17. Hello Aarthi.. thanks for sharing this recipe. I have a small doubt. Ginger and Green Chilli to be added as paste or chopped as you showed in picture. Thanks.

  18. Hi Aarti,

    When I tried it had the raw taste of ginger evident. My mom mentioned, that we have to wash the chopped ginger thoroughly and saute the ginger in oil for a pretty long time until the raw taste goes off. Probably this tip helps others who faced the same issue.
