Kacche Kele TamatarKi Sabji… I love this freaking Vegetable… A very good option for people who hate to eat raw bananas… To be true to you all I fooled my hubby with this veggie… Till date he doesn't know what I cooked… He hates raw banana and this was the best way to make him have this… He just loved the taste and never asked me what it was… I am so happy…
