Last week my hubby went out of station for 2 days, since it is summer holidays, i asked my friend Hema to come for staying. I thought let me try this recipe for them. It came out well and she and kids like this. We had a good time chatting all night, and of course the kids enjoyed. We had a good time. I made coconut rice , double beans gravy , Cauliflower Manchurian and lemon Juice. I made poori aloo for dinner.
