Thanks Asha, yes just! If finally have our summer here, it has been sunny all week now. Tomorrow is supposed to be high of 30, so it will be a good opportunity to dry some carrots for the gur carrot pickle! so watch this space

Sharmi said...

that is a great one for "Z". very new kind of wrap for me. how could you wrap a whole zucchini in there?

Saju said...

i couldn't wrap the zucchini, I folded the chapati, and spilled half the filling on my clothes when I was eating it!

sra said...

that's a useful post, only, in India, sumac is hard to come by!

Saju said...

sra, you can use dried mango instead, as it has similar taste.
