Snake guard in milk

SNAKE GUARD.................everyone use to say "shit, i hate it, ohhhhhhh  nooooooo.............. we dont like the smell.............".I dunno why people(especially my husband, my brother....) use to say such things when i got a topic of this guard. One day i prepared this recipe and served it when my hungry husband came for lunch. I was eagerly waiting for the result in panic, to my surprise, my 'H' said the curry is delicious and he asked me whether it is bottle or ridge guard. Because last night only we bought some fresh vegetables from the farmers market  and he told me to take ridge guard as they are very fresh and he did not noticed when i was purchasing the 'SNAKE GUARD' lol........ I told that it is ridge, you told me to take as they are very fresh(i'm trying to cover my laugh) . Finally when my husband completed his lunch i started laughing, and he was staring at me for what i'm laughing and came to know the truth that it is snake guard not a ridge guard. Proved that snake guard is very  very tasty than ridge or bottle guard.................:):)
