She also told me that if I do this one successfully, it is equivalent to 21 Sankashthi’s. I have faith in Lord Ganesha, so I decided that I should do it. The day went well. But when the night came and we returned home from office, I went and checked my fridge as to what all veges are there. Normally I would cook the simple potato sabji. But this time I thought of preparing something unique. My imagination and the experiment turned out to be a very successful one. A great dish without onions and garlic. Check the recipe below.
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp cumin seeds
8-10 curry leaves
1/2 tsp asafoetida
