I recieved a gift basket with all sorts of items I do not know how to cook with. First do you cook flattened rice the same way as rice? What is shanklesh. It is ia a jar and appears to be packed in oil and seasoned with herbs? Could it be a cheese of some sort ? It is in the shape of eggs. Also what does one do with a 2lb. bag of dried tuna? Do you reconstitute it? If so how? None of these pkgs have directions.Ghee is clarified butter. Right? Do I use it the same as the butter I use in the grocery stores. There is something in a bag called Vangi Bhath. It smells alot like the combination of spices I use in curries. Amchur powder? I can figure out the rest, because they have listed ingredients on the cans, or packages. I got pickled turnips. That's one I have never tried. We pickle just about evey vegetable we grow, but never turnips.
