I am sure you all must be wondering what this is about, well it is a traditional winter dish amongst the Gujerathi community, and it falls into the comfort food bracket. The green garlic used here looks very much like spring onions, however garlic leaves are flat and not tubular like the spring onions. They are available at green grocers that stock a variety of Indian vegetables or you can get it at chinese vegetable shops or you could just use garlic chives from woolies and add a bit of fresh garlic to get the extra garlic flavour.
