Lau, Potol and Summer Food

While it is only mildly warm in my part of the world, I know it is raging summer in most parts of India. So I thought of sharing a few dishes perfect for summer from my blog with you.

  2. Love potol but haven't had it for a long time. Don't like the ones we get in Texas :( Your post made me crave some.

      We get good potol for a few days in summer. But we have to be on the look out, often it is the old dry ones that are sold

    1. What is usual alu-parwal ? Sukhi sabzi with jeera tadka ?
      I love the dalna. A bit of ghee makes it so much better too
      The Doi Potol recipes was sent by my Mother, I am yet to try it

  5. The dalna is one of my favourites!! With ghee and gorom bhaat of course! :)
    These days I have been making the lau bodi and dudh lau with the chow chow squash Sandeepa. And it tastes even better than it does with lau! :)

  7. Hello Sandeepa,
    I have been a regular reader of your blog for the past two years. I never got a chance to communicate with you before.
    Firstly, congratulations on your Cook Book!
    Secondly, this afternoon I cooked some of your recommended summer food and thought I should share that with you. Following is the link:)
    Thanks,
    Sohini.
