  1. Calling all Gujarati cooks: I had undhiyo at a friend’s place the other day and it was very tasty. She said she added dal to the recipe, but I dont remember if this authentic or just her yummy version. If anyone knows for sure and has a good traditional recipe, please respond.

    PS: Please dont cut and paste recipes or links off the internet, I am more than capable of doing my own research using google or yahoo (or any other search engine)!!
