#NoolKholLeafLentil: Last week a friend of mine sent 3 #noolkhols with leaf from her garden. The leaves were very fresh and I didn't want to throw them away. I washed a leaf and tasted. Its taste was just like radish leaf. So I decided to include the noolkhol leaves in lunch. So that day I prepared lentil with those fresh #noolkholleaf.
