Hubby dear was not feeling well. Had a bad cold and cough. All choked up. My mom used to say that hot and spicy stuff helps in eliminating cold, esp Mutton. So heading my mom's advice, I prepared this dish for hubby dear over the weekend. When I mentioned it to a friend, she said she would like the recipe as her hubby is very fond of spicy food. So this recipe goes to my friend Mish. Hope you and V enjoy it.
