We say TAKKIDI...it takes such a long time to prepare this and u must be really patient to prepare it...we always make with mutton in India but after coming to Singapore I make with chicken and some time prawns...ur looks very very tempting....i know how good it would have tasted...this is really a traditional dish..love it.
