Nothing I say is going to justify this dish. You must try it to understand the sentiment. This dish is the perfect example of fusion cuisine. While rendering an earthy and nutty flavour the Jowar/ Sorghum grains beautifully take on the rich creamy and subtle flavour of the Italian influence. What a beautiful marriage of cultures and flavours. Food has such a gentle way to get people to bond and communicate. So, this weekend give it a try. Perfect meal to rekindle romance and love. Wishing you a wonderful weekend ahead.
