This recipe has been submitted for play in ZWT8 - India. This recipe was found on Indian Food Forever.

Fresh ground cardamom is best, it has a lovely subtle flavor that is lost when you buy it already ground.

I'm going to have to look for white poppy seeds as I know my sis is going to want to try this recipe on her next visit. Can't wait!
