1. one that is made with bhajiya sort of things....those are made out of chana no lot (kind of muthiya...but hard ones...)...along with gor .... this recepie is never bitter....and so u can see how ppl who dont like the bitter taste can eat it too...
(haha my mom makes it... i havnt advanced so much that i can make this one myself.... but yeah...lemme know if you dont know abt this one...i will ask her and try to post that recepie...)

2. karela kaju n sev nu shak..... am sure tame ghana lagan na jaman ma khadhu hase!! i dont know how to make it ....but i juz love the taste of it...

hey loved your recipe for karela with mango. I am going to post the Karela recipe I made, after getting inspired from your previous post of that recipe.
I have made few modifications but still tastes great.
I so so much miss jamuns as we do't get jamuns in the US, I miss so many other fruits, like Falsa, Rayan, Lal Goonda, Kothu,Talpadi, Sitaphal etc.
