this veggie bring back nostalgic memories of my stay at my maternal uncle
place every summer.
Mami an excellent cook used to make kurma and chapatti or puri for
breakfast on Sundays. The veggie she made was so delicious that we used to
fight for it in the afternoon for lunch also.
the veggie often but did not know how to make it. Too timid to ring Mami up and
ask her for the recipe (we were a joint family then) I never did make it. Now
this time I asked her how it is made and Mami true to her word not only gave me
the recipe but also made it for me to eat. It was not the same. I missed all my
cousins and the fights we had to eat the veggie. Another childhood memory goes
in the treasure chest!!
