Mother is your first teacher, friend and a guide. But later in life you meet friends who make your life meaningful and you start learning new things from them. Life was kind on me and made me come across a friend on facebook in one of the Food Groups I am a member of. Sonu and me haven’t met ever but this friendship is beyond seeing each other. It is about the bond we share. This recipe of Stuffed Touri I learnt from her. It is how her mother in law likes it. Oh by the way I also learnt from her Authentic Kaddha Prasad which is already on my blog 🙂

I have always been making touri the way my mommy has taught me, with waddi as we call it in Punjabi. You must try this Touri Waddiyan recipe as well. But Sonu taught me this new version which was as delicious as the other one. This is to add to my series of Stuffed Vegetables I have on my blog. If you are keen to try them, I have Stuffed Baby Brinjals Punjabi Style, Stuffed Bittergourd or Bharwan Karela, Stuffed Apple Gourd or Bhawan Tinda listed here, will be adding more shortly.

Directions:
