“Adapted a bit from the RD Cookbook. Borrowed this book many times from my mum and used the recipes but have never stored them as my kitchen shelves cannot take anymore cookbooks ;) So now storing them on Zaar for posterity so brought it specially from mum for the purpose. Feel like I am distributing treasures. A good feeling :) Cook time does not include marination time.”
