Shaljam Bhujya

Shaljam Bhujya is one of the not so favorite 😀 not so famous Pakistani dish in home cooking. Kids hate it but oldies love it. My recipe is very simple, handy and easy. It is actually my grandma’s recipe. I have learnt cooking vegetables from her, she makes it mild but my recipe is hot and spicy. Give it a try!
