Why I Love This Recipe
I enjoy preparing this dish as this is my children's favorite dish. And since this was their favorite dish I used to try various recipes that I could lay my hands on in the quest to get "that perfect taste" they would call Restaurant Style. Whilst chatting with my colleague one day she smiled and simply jotted down the recipe she had from her mom and told me try this. Well and the rest is history.
