POTD_W50-1

Gol Gappa from Babu Ji.  This Indian street snack consists of a hollow lentil shell filled with a soupy sauce called imli pani. Pop the whole golf-ball sized snack into your mouth, and it explodes on your tongue to release a mouthful of tangy, tamarind sauce.

December 12:  Trying a new recipe from Cooks Country (Feb/Mar 2016):  French White Bean Stew aka “lazy man’s cassoulet.”
