Its raining cats and dogs outside. My mom called day before and told me that there is lot of Tera Pan (small colocasia leaves/Taro leaves) in their surroundings and this is the time for preparing Ganti Buthi another delicacy of Konkani’s. All those monsoon vegetables like Kirlu, Ambade, variety of leaves are all available at my native place. I am Nostalgic of those monsoon dishes and curries. Anyway my brother came yesterday and he brought Tera pan and ambade and I prepared this Ganti Buthi for us.
