    your recipe is very good. Only comment I have, having been in USA so long, Fry means with some oil. Do you mean just fry without oil, like roasting? or saute with oil? Or fry with deep oil.
    I think you mean roasting!!
    Reply would be appreciated

    Here fry means dry roasting before it is cooked.
