Recently Fairtrade Original introduced Banana blossoms in a can and I attended an online workshop to make Thai fish cakes using banana blossoms. But I had to try my all time favorite Mocha'r ghonto that I haven't had in the last 3 years and wanted to check if a canned version of this vegetable can do the job right. What do you think?
