  1. Your post brings back the memory of eating it this outside palika bazaar. I love eating it with the citrous kamrakh (star fruit)slices.

  2. Oh, your post brought memories of eating this. My mom would just boil it with a pinch of salt and it would taste so good. I like the ones she used to roast on charcoal.
