ANDHRA THALI-3G

Yes  I  called it as 3G lunch thali because unknowingly I prepared recipes with the veggies starting with the letter 'G'.All these are very tasty recipes served with rice,or paratha.the recipes in detail are as follows, in Telengana we call guvar as chevulakaya and puntukura for gongura.All these are traditional recipes which are made with very few ingredients without using masalas and we also feel the taste of the vegetable
