Born and raised in Gujarati family, we tried to save every little drop of oil or  peels of vegetable that are edible. My grandmother would use dudhi ni chal, Keda ni chaal and many more  wasted food to make delicious meals. It would satisfy her that a waste was saved and also the fact that it was turned into something super delicious. Next time you get Dudhi or Lauki you must try this sambharo
