NOTES :

If you don’t feel like eating shrimps, you can use any meat of your choice.

Removing the shrimps from the pan will prevent it from overcooking.

You can use heavy cream instead of milk and cheese combination.

If you don’t have hard boiled eggs, you can use quail eggs or just leave it out.
