Some say that cost of ingredients and tedious preparation method were some of the reasons why this is not a common everyday dish; however, I believe that we can do something to ease the preparation part – this post and the accompanying video might come-in handy for everyone. As for the cost, there are several ways that we can do to control it. One way is to reuse the ingredients that we already have.
