Dear Chandramukhi ji, Your video took me back to my childhood days in Kashmir when my mother used to pick these flowers from our courtyard and prepare the al posh pakora. Your preparation looked very tasty, thank you for sharing this recipe. Regards, Ashita

A pleasant trip down the memory lane...... Used to eat a lot of them when in Srinagar (before 1990) from home grown Alla-Posh.
