After successfully posting some Combo Dishes from across the world for the first week, it is the turn of the Indian States this week.
So I shall showcase some popular recipes from 6 different states this week. Today is the turn of the largest Agricultural state in India, Punjab.
This recipe has been shared by my dear friend and neighbor, Pooja. In her version, tomato was not included but I added it more out of habit :).
The platter today consists of Shalgam ki Sabzi, Roti, Chili Pickle, Methi-Palak Dal, Salad, Buttermilk and Rice.
