This is a blend of a vegetable and a fruit,both of
the same colour,rich in VitaminC and other
nutrients. To add to this ,I have added whey
water,which is also very healthy. Now for those
of you who are not aware of what whey water
is .., here’s the definition.
Whey water is the liquid that you get when
milk curdles when you make paneer or cottage
cheese.I store that strained water in the fridge
and use it when I make chappathi or any curry.
Trust me it is delicious when added to curries.
Today I made South Indian vada curry with
whey water,and it was delicious.
