This is a new dish I learnt to make from Salma, my domestic help and maid here in Pune. She usually has been learning recipes from me; but this time she learnt this one from Vinod uncle, a professional chef from Mumbai, who works part time for us here in Pune. Quite a cool recipe indeed and I'm thankful to the both of them for sharing it. If you are fond of vegetables and want to try a new dish, don't miss out on this one. Its very simple and tastes wonderful. Enjoy!
