A big thank you to Prima Kurien for this delicious recipe . I made it twice , the first time as a curry and the second time I broke tradition and kept it more dry . They both tasted brilliant , personally I enjoyed the dryer version more . Am sharing a photograph of both versions , the wet one in comments . Everyone at home loves this recipe and I hope you do too .
