Conclusion

I get the convenience of having it delivered, but why bother spending that extra cash when you can easily make it at home and make it with love and care. Spending the time cooking, moreover if your family gets to help things in the kitchen, is much more rewarding than simply waiting for the delivery to arrive.

This is one of those recipes that preparing it takes more time than the actual cooking with heat. But it shouldn't deter you from trying out this dish, that preparation pays off, you'll see.
