Magge Sasam (Temple style)

This is a typical traditional konkani style curry which is prepared in most of the households , I am sure every family might have that special magical touch in their recipe which was passed on by their elders , here's the way it's been prepared in my house and which in turn I learnt from my mom . As shravan month marks so many auspicious days , I thought this post is apt for the festive month , do try this simple satvikk recipe which I am sure you would find it lovely when served with rice . Do leave in your feedback on my space below would love to read your comments !
