  38. That stew looks so delicious. Very colorful and love the ingredients you have used. Regarding your question on Subja seeds, may be it might be available in Indian stores. Got to check with Vidhya. But the instant Falooda mixes which carry this subja seeds also in the packs are available for sure.
