I agree with Afshan.This recipe is same as in KHANAPAKANA,which I tried often and is delicious.I request to publish only original and selfmade recipe.I also agree with Kim and Deb that recipe is a bit lacking.Truth is bitter but the best way.Sorry I can't digest,Dr.Shaikh.

The ingredients and spices in this dish are just right, however, the recipe is a little lacking. It does not say how to use the hot milk, what to do with the other half of the fried onions or how to prepare the green chilis. I made this with lamb and served the rice separately. It was delicious. You just have to guess at a few things..
