Day 12 BM #56 -
The third week of this edition of Mega Marathon will have us post some interesting condiments from all over the world.
Today, I chose a very popular condiment from Nepal, called Chukauni. The flavor in this potato salad pickle is very close to any perugu pachadi we make back at home.
We all loved it with rice but I am sure it will taste just as good with Roti.
