Vegetable Houses

this recipe is somewhat similar to rissoto (italian dish). i found these vegetable houses healthier than rissoto as it uses broken wheat and veggies. my made it for my granny when she visited and because of its smooth and soft texture she could eat it...she was very happy..however i did not add ginger garlic.
