Hi Neelam,
I am a big fan of your blog. I was thrilled when I saw your post on Ninawa. I always thought this was one of the most complicated delicacies as I saw my aaji and mom make it. Your recipe seems simple to make. Though i have still not gotten to making it myself, I just wanted to let you know that I definitely will soon.
