Hello lovely foodies! How are you? I am doing well here in this monsoon! In West Bengal, this year monsoon has come with her whole family! 😆 So we have rain more than enough! I love monsoon very much; but sometimes heavy rain causes to stop going market to shop groceries and others. And, again I face the problem – what to cook?? 😁
In my readers, so many of you are vegetarian and they have requested to share more vege-recipes. Raksha Bandhan is coming very soon; so I am thinking about a special vege-recipe, which all the vegetarian foodies can cook for their siblings. 😀 What about ‘Elephant Foot Yam’ or ‘Suran’? Let’s go for a delicious recipe of this amazing vegetable! 👇
