Sowthekai Hasi Gojju



Hi
 One of the dishes that I fondly remember from childhood days is this hasi gojju. Hasi in kannada means raw and this side dish is a no cook dish but taste awesome when served with hot rice. Give me this in lunch and dinner and I will happily eat. The flavour and the taste is so good that we would like to make this often
