GAHU SHENGDANA USAL / WHOLE WHEAT AND PEANUT STIR FRY

This recipe is shared by one of my dear friends Arpita Kulkarni. Its been such a long time ago that she had mentioned about it and I had even decided on making it but some how it went on the back burner. Last week while going through my notes i came across it again and decided thats its now that this needs to be made before it remains back again just in the book. So here is the usal and it turned out fabulous. Serve it as an accompaniment as its quiet filling and at a time you cant eat much of it. So also make it in small portions.  This recipe would serve around 6 portions.
