BM#63 Day 3 -
After a break of Sunday, let's start the week with a nutritious dish with 'C'.
My love for legume based side dishes is well known at home. I feel that these legume based dishes pair well with both rice and roti and make a complete meal.
Chavli in Marathi means black eyed beans and Bhaji is curry.
My friend shared a multi purpose masala which her family uses for most of the legumes. As I mentioned previously, the addition of coconut adds a lot of flavor and consistency.
