My mother is a great cook, who lives in our soul is a great expert in making this theeyal and especially she loves to make it when we are planning for a picnic. On those days very very early in the morning she would get up & with nobody's help, she alone would do all.I think as a daughter I have done something similar to it, but nothing matches my mum's taste.
