Tokri of the Month –

When we were growing up there was no such thing as non seasonal fruit and vegetables. It meant months of watery veggies like Bottle Gourd/Ghia, SquashMelon/Tinda and Sponge Melon/Tori and then months of Peas/Mattar and Carrots/Gajar.
You get everything through the year now but vegetables in season taste great and look better too.
