This was used to be farmed in village area in WB what I can remember and used its oil as edible oil by poor community and comparatively richer people used mustard oil. Also Til was used similarly . But now a days I think both obsolete. Til was also be used to make cutlet like posto . Thanks for ur simple preparation and highlighting benefits.
