This recipe is shared by an experienced and passionate home cook Ms. Deepti Agrawal, who lives in Lucknow, India.

She says “I am 26 years old, working as a professional in MBA HR. I had to work for 7-8hrs work daily which kind of became monotonous as my love for food and quest of looking for places to find good food draw me towards cooking .So, I left my job and went onto trying my hands into cooking and baking. Today I am satisfied serving my family and friends as they love and appreciate it and I love doing it for them.”
