  1. Hi came across your lovely blog during a search for recipes for kochur shaak. Have bookmarked your blog! :)

    Also wanted to say regarding the recipe for bread pakoras,this used to be sold, a similar larger version, at the Jadavpur University canteen (Kolkata) and they used to call it Dhoper Chop! :) Don't know if they still do, it was years and years ago.
