    dal main karela,maine to yeh pehli baar hi dekha.Mummy se jarur kahungi ki ye dal try kare. waise mujhe karele ki sabzi pasand hain.aapne kabhi Hyderabadi stuffed karele ki sabzi khayi hain kya.jisme stuffing ke liye sukha nariyal aur white seasme powder ka istemal kiya jaata hain.waise ye stuffing bhindi main bhi bhari jaati hain.
    ye unique karele waali dal ki recipie batane ke liye shukriya.
