If you want to order both the appetizers, this scribe would recommend having the wings before moving on to the mustang aloo. The green onion that accompanies this dish works well when swirled around in the hot sauce.

Before I got married, the same relatives would follow me around during family gatherings and ask me when I would get married. Now that I am married, they still keep on harassing me and now my wife as well with their ‘baby’ remarks and queries.
