Great combo, looks yum!:)

Saju said...

thanks Asha.

I need some advise. I am not sure I know the protocol of comments. Is it polite to reply to each one (that would double the number of comments), or read and only comment on the ones that ask a question?
comments on this will be very helpful.

This looks out of the world delicious!

Saju, I'm not Asha but here goes...do what is most comfortable to you. You could reply to all the comments in a single comment. Or you could reply to those who ask questions and a generic reply to those who have commented, again in a single comment. Do what seems right to you. Replying to comments can be very time consuming esp if you get a ton of comments. You might want to spend that time on writing posts instead! And those of us who love your recipes won't mind! :-)

At what point do you add the ginger, garlic and green chillies? To the onions, with the methi or after you add the tomatoes? This sounds like a really easy but delicious recipe.

Rina said...

Saju, Love your recipe. I've never tried this combo. Mom and Gm used to make prawns with Gongura, sorrel leaves which used to be yummy too. I should try your combo too.

Saju said...

Thanks everyone for your comments.
Thank you Manisha for your advice.
I have ammended the recipe to include the garlic, ginger and green chillies. They are added at the same time as the methi leaves.

Rina, I have never had sorrel, I think it taste sharp, (does it?) I must try it when I see sorrel next.

Sig said...
