  1. interesting. mustard oil i havent used as i think the smell is bit too strong. but okra and potato this way tastes yummy

  2. What a clever idea to use szechaun pepper powder with okra and potato. I love Nepali food for the way they so easily mix Indian and Chinese cooking traditions!
    Lovely sabzi :-)
