Hello dear Readers! Today I’m going to share the recipe of Mushti polo for the third time  .Yes, this is the third recipe in the space and more to come.This time I tried my neighbour Vidya akka’s recipe adding ‘charmuri’ i.e puffed rice. Mushti polo compliments well with red chutney and my favourite too. Mushti means fist and polo means dosa..Stay tuned for interesting recipes!!
