  1. Very nice recipe ! What would be the best substitute for sausage apart from paneer / tofu.. i prefer vegetarian food. Can i skip mushrooms in this recipe?
    5 stars

  2. I love this recipe but as I m turning Vegan slowly, I would need substitutes for cheese and milk. Also, How do you steam broccoli? Is investing in a good steamer a great idea or can we do some innovation in our own kitchen?5 stars
