Parwal & Aloo Sabji


Last month my parents were here for a week. House becomes so cheerful and lively when our parents are here. My dad loves to go out try out new eating joints and try variety of cuisines. This time he had a long drive with his SIL and had Chinese food. His routine in Bangalore will be getting up early in the morning and while we are all fast asleep (me only on weekend :() he will help in the kitchen and then he would come and stand with me when i get picked from the cab. Fun part would be standing with waiting for the cab and constantly will speak about cars. thanks to him that I  have a car craze!. 

It is always amazing the way he starts a conversation with a stranger from a vegetable vendor to   anybody and finally there will a connection most of the time to out home town. this time his connection was with a vegetable super market and owner and he got "Parwal", I haven't used this vegetable till day. He had asked the way of cooking from the owner and adapting from the recipe of both the owner and internet prepared this.
