Murg nawab shan. Recipe post by fathima divan from Salem. she didn’t send in a description but did call and tell me that she took so much pain in putting up this dish together. Well i do this every day and no harm in letting others feel my effort once in a while. The difference here is , I do it out of the passion i have towards food so i guess it’s done effortlessly with a flow then and there.
