komala — newly grown; nimba-patra — nimba leaves; saha — with; bhājā — fried; vārtākī — eggplant; paṭola — with paṭola fruit; phula-baḍi — a preparation of dhal; bhājā — fried; kuṣmāṇḍa — squashes; mānacāki — the food called mānacāki.
Amongst the various vegetables were newly grown leaves of nimba trees fried with eggplant. The fruit known as paṭola was fried with phulabaḍi, a kind of dhal preparation first mashed and then dried in the sun. There was also a preparation known as kuṣmāṇḍa-mānacāki.
We request our editors of cookbooks to add all these nice preparations described by the experienced author Śrīla Kavirāja Gosvāmī.
