  1. Tasty and delicious 🔥🔥🔥🔥

  2. जिभेला ओढ त्या चवीची
    मिटक्या मारत खाण्याची...

    बटर जसं जसं भाजीवर विरघळलं
    सुदंर सुवासानं मन माझं ओढलं....

    लुसलुशीत पणा कोवळं मन जाणवतो
    खमंग मसाल्यांची जोड, घास आपला भासतो...

    जिभेला चव कशी जवळीक वाटावी
    सुट्टी ची सुंदर रात्र पावभाजीने रंगावी..
