Padpe aajadina / Greens Sukka

Okay to tell you the truth...I did not want to put this up. Not a big fan of greens(I like greens curry though). Iam married I have a two year old daughter ,but my mom still has a hard time making me eat greens. 

But my mom insisted I put up something healthy. So GREENS SUKKA everyone for a healthy life.
