What’s so special about this dish? Here’s what Shannon has to say: 

“Because it is a coconut-based and mildly spiced curry. You can use vegetables like pumpkin, drumsticks, radish, turnips, cauliflower, and so on to make lonvas. The best way to connect with my elders in the family is by preparing this flawsome dish with its awesome aroma which has no flaws at all. The elders just love to enjoy this dish with rice. It is a tradition to prepare this dish in an East Indian Home.”
