              Happy Women's Day!!
   So, for this great dedication of this special post on women's day for one of the great lady, who always inspired me in cooking skill.. I'm sharing today's recipe from Bhavna's kitchen. This post and recipe is all about inspired by some women and I learn lots of cooking by watching Bhavna's youtube videos. After getting married, not a lot but few responsibilities came on and started cooking with whatever I could make. Usually some routine food. After moving into USA, couldn't find some delicious Indian Food anywhere around me..Even though I wanted to eat tasty food but never knew how to cook. Interest for cooking was somewhere in the corner of my heart. After searching for good tasty recipes, finally one time I watched Bhavna's recipe on youtube and tried that , not only that but came out same as i wanted since a long.. My tries and errors makes me perfect day by day and all credit for new recipes goes to Bhavna, when it comes about inspiration. So, today's recipe is copycat recipe from her and I"m sure this recipe will satisfied you whenever u craving for some restaurant style food..
