It seems his Prawn capsicum recipe was hit between his friends and hence I suggested this time that he tries out prawn skewers.

I am sharing this step by step pudding recipe of Lotus seeds, also known as Foxnut seeds which can be made in jiffy. It is more commonly known as “Makhane Ke Kheer” (मखाने की खीर).
