daisyguha (6/23/2003)….this is really good. we all enjoyed it.

preemadixit (5/2/2003)….Excellent recipe… i only did not garnish with browned onions as i was lazy 🙂

diyasma (2/11/2003)….this was so good!! I really liked it. The only change I made to it was that since I wanted my kids to enjoy it as much as we did, I did not add any chillies to the original recipe, instead fried split green chillies with onions and used that as a topping. Talk about scrumptious!!!!
