Hi Vanamala,

I only knew to prepare gorikai palya so far.I used to eat gorikai palya all these days due to its iron content.But gorikai in gorikai palya tastes very bitter.I was thinking of either giving up on the vegetable or trying some different preparation.So i searched the net and caught hold of your recipe.I tried it out and liked it.Henceforth will prepare only this.Thank you.
