Labra- Assamese Cuisines

This time I tried some very popular recipes from Assamese cuisines… because of choosing North East food for 4th week of this month. Out of all first is Labra, To know proper procedure and flavors of this labra recipe I prefer to choose Sunita’s labra recipes from her space. Under this recipe, Combine and stir mix veggies with tempering of bay leaves, red chili and panch phoron. Panch phoron is very authentic spice mix of North East cuisines.
