    I read it wrong at first. i thought name of dish is qeema malai handi and i wasted lots of time in finding malai both in the list of ingredients and in the handi as well :D

    I'll give it a try on some weekend when i will have some time from the hectic routine of university.
    A request, if you like, then can u be my blogs follower :)?

  2. I didnt know we can cook directly in the handi. :p I thought the restaurant people just put it in there for a good presentation. Hehe!

    About time I used those handis that we have stored up. :)

    Rabab - Yes, you can cook in Handi too. But before you cook in it, fill Handi with water and leave overnight. Then cook in it the other day. :)
