This weeks menu, I tried my best to make it as north Indian lunch. And I enjoyed this plate of meal myself. Don't envy, you can prepare and enjoy too, that's why this lunch idea :) I rarely buy tindora / ivy gourd / kovakkai makes rare appearance in my kitchen. I am cooking this for only the second time. Though I love this veggie, no body else likes it. And when ever I take a pack of kovakkai, Vj gives me a weird look, so I keep it back. But this time, I really wanted to make it for myself so bought a pack. And I loved it with triangle roti paratha. And the semiya kesari I made especially for this post, I am sure Vj gonna enjoy this when he is back from office. I got this recipe from my friend and this will be my next post too. So here is how I prepared this meal.
