OMG, I am drooling over those step by step pics. Even I have it bookmarked from her blog, but haven't tried my hands yet. The process is almost like mysorep pak, you mix things one by one while stirring. What a great color and texture of the final dish. But, I was just looking at that flow of butter and re-thinking ... lol :)
