Vegetable Salna

Vegetable Salna
My love for parota ( not paratha) started during my school days. Even though parota will be available in classy shops, the taste of vegetable salna in small restaurants is unbeatable.  Parota taste will be exponential when you dunk the parota in salna and taste it after some time. Parota and Salna blend together and gives a unique taste. As I love it a lot, my mom used to prepare this kurma and parota in home. Please check below for step by step instructions and pictures for preparing South Indian Vegetarian Salna Recipe.
