PAKORA DAHI KADHI RECIPE

GOAN POTATO CURRY

Instead of chucking leftover white rice,most homes use it in some sort of masala-fried version to be had at breakfast the next day. Similarly,when I was younger,unconsumed rotis were torn to bits and sauteed with onion, green chillies and spices to creat a quick,tasty morning snack call phodnichi poli. the sri lankans made an art […]
