I was thinking about blogging about this typical konkani style Buns from many days. But recently one of my visitor, Seema, requested for this recipe. So I thought of blogging about it without any further delay.’Buns’ is a very famous Konkani dish usually prepared with pumpkin or ripe bananas. Usually when we get the big pumpkins at home, a veriety of dishes are prepared using them. It will be cut into big pieces and some of the pieces go to neighbours and relatives who stay in nearby places. The remaining pieces are dried under the sun and kept for a few days.
Since I love pumpkins, my parents keep it till I go home for some vacations and then cut it and the usual procedure I explained just now goes on!!. Isn’t it so sweet…. Ahh…I am missing my parents now…Well, I think I am becoming too emotional!!.
