kori ghassi (original)

I have already posted kori ghassi recipe beforekori ghassi in a jiffy,but that was the short cut version,This is the original version, this is how my mom makes kori ghassi.Every one has their own way of making it,but this is the one I have been having for a very long time and haven't liked kori ghassi any other way.
I would like to thank my mom (who I think is the best cook)for helping me in this recipe and for sharing it with others.
In this picture kori ghassi is served with pundi
