Jai ho!

by Sanjeev Kapoor

Menu: Time really flies! This year all of us Indians will be celebrating the 67th Independence Day with all the zeal, remembering the true heroes who helped us attain the freedom which we have today! And why leave the food as well behind. Instigate that free-will feel of yours and cook a meal with a flavourful Narangi Shorba as a starter, then Tiranga Pulao and finally a delicious Badam Pista Kulfi. Jai Hind!
