Gajarachi Koshimbeer (2)


Every winter, my grandmother would make two carrot dishes flavored with garlic greens. One was carrot - garlic green pickle and the other was koshimbeer. Since fall is around, I have to snip off all the herbs. So it was a good tribute to garlic greens and chives from my kitchen garden.
