This is a recipe from a cookbook I use almost like a bible, Pure and Simple by Vidhu Mittal. I simply love this book! Definitely add this to your cookbook collection. She has interesting and simple vegetarian dishes even for the novice cook. All the steps are clearly listed and complicated steps are explained in lovely pictures.
