This is a dish every Singaporean is familiar with, and it is often sold by Indian muslims. It fully utilizes all the spices in an everyday Indian kitchen that most Singaporeans are familiar with. At least I store all of these spices in my pantry every day of the year.

I have cooked this dish the way curry is often made. It is quite fail proof and it cuts the cooking time from 4.5 hours to 30-45 minutes. It is just as delicious as its more prep-lengthy version, just easier.

Have fun trying this dish! I am sure it will be a real hit.
