Oh my goodness! One of the best dishes ever. I visited dhaka and had bhaji for breakfast everyday and it was what I looked forward to most. I have looked for a recipe that replicates the delicious taste for the past few years, but have never found it-- until yours!! absolutely amazingly tasty in all its simplicity Thanks sooooo much!!
