OPOS, One Pot One Shot,.... Is a registered trademark. It is illegal to use them without written permission and also it can't be used for a recipe which does not follow the OPOS technique. The technique followed here is not OPOS so kindly remove the term OPOS from this recipe. Regards Dr Sujatha Mohan
