About this recipe: This dish is unique for the way the ingredients are prepared. Instead of using pastes of ginger, garlic or onion, the slices are used. The slices bring a different texture and flavor to the dish and it is lighter than the curry made with pasted ingredients. Serve with plain rice, pulao or paratha.
