Very simple dish. If you want to get best cook applause, you can try this. I got a big applause from my friends. You can try any gravy item(veg/non-veg) as side dish. Paneer butter masala, that too if you make, mm...who knows, you may be crowned as "Samayal Rani". You can also refer my cauliflower-peas masala to prepare paneer butter masala.
