  1. Linda, What a yummy boshi ! The mention of jack fruit seeds and bombil made me drool! I use temlam (tirphal) too. what a unique taste it lends to the dish, right?


  2. What a wonderful feast Linda. that curry sounds delicious. I have to look online and see if I can find jackfruit seeds the same with telfam. Beautiful grouping of foods.
