Gopalkala is a Janmashtami special dish, made of poha, curd & some seasoning to it. Apart from being a festive dish it is a cooling dish for summer days. This is a simple dish, which takes very few minutes of time in making it & tastes delicious. This dish is similar to south indian “Dadojanam” or curd rice & the only difference is we make this with beaten rice or poha.
