  1. Namaste Ladies,

    If I had any idea how to do a puja to Annapurna for you both I would most happily do so. This recipe is fantastic and turned out very well. Too bad I am unable to share this dish with anyone due to present conditions. I guess that means more for me to enjoy.

    Thank you both. Be well. Be safe.

    1. Hi Mona,
      Yes, those are the best…if you can get your hands on them! The flavor is very similar to that of a radish and it compliments the dish even more so.
      Happy Hunting ?
