As Ramadan is just round the corner and so are ready to fry freezer- preps going on at most Muslim households, this is one recipe that has added on to the variety in my freezer this year. Melt in the mouth chicken-veggies bound together with creamy white sauce, coated with crispy vermicelli makes it a easy and less oily alternative to the usually heavy and oily ifthar snacks. Without much a do lets directly get on to the recipe.
