Difficulty Level: 
Vegetarian, Low Cholesterol
Surti Locho is a staple breakfast dish from Surat in India. Bhavna shows us how to make it in her own precise style. In my opinion, the Locho is the vegetarian equivalent of a lamb leg as it comes packed with protein. It is so perfect for breakfast. Enjoy!
