Girish Mehta, 34, from New Delhi says, "The recipe I am sharing is not any secret, but whenever it was made by my mom I always fell in love (with it).

"She taught us how to cook it in a way that's not too spicy.

"She was a good cook and I always enjoyed her homemade food. She passed away in 2009, and I miss her and her food.

"I will always cherish the taste which I still feel on (the tip of my) tongue."
