Brinjol, Potato and Peas Curry

We learn a new thing or two everyday on our Facebook Watalotwegot group.  Sometimes even learning to pronounce a veggie in a different dialect😉.

Did You know Brinjol or Eggplant is called 'Wengra' in the Gujarati language??? This was new to me, but thanks to the wonderful lovelies on the group who quickly enlightened me.
