Just to share with you……
This I tried on my own by searching on net. But I had this many times before from my north Indian friend Maitri. Every friday she used to do fasting and during fasting she used to eat this.
I modified her recipe a little with the ideas I got from net and I started cooking this. Though this can be eaten as breakfast, we used to eat this as evening tiffin/snack. Hope you will also enjoy.
