Kellya Usli

Gosh..just in time..just in time.Almost thought I wouldn't be able to post today..:-(.Today was a busy day...doing what you might think..;-).Was planning to post in the evening,one thing came after other and here I am with my latest(pun-intended) post in RM.

I rarely used banana(plantain) as a vegetable in my cooking.Made simple upkari sometimes,but thats it.This one too is my ma-in-law's speciality and one dish which made me buy banana every time during our veggie shopping.Its quite similar to "thoran",only the masala differs.
