    Hello Vikram, do not get discouraged by lack of comments from readers on the recipe. Meanwhile, this is to let you know about a well deserving review from a recipe tryer, who I had routed to your recipe page when she wanted me to suggest her an indian chicken curry recipe with ginger as an ingredient in it. Well, she got back today to thank me for suggesting her your wonderful recipe, that she says, got her truck loads of praises from her family members when she cooked it for them for supper on Sunday. Keep up the good work.
