Susla reminds me of funny incident that had happened with my grandma. We both had gone to stay with her brother and he had got nice fresh chirmure from the place where they make it fresh per order in Kolhapur. And that evening my grandma just soaked it water and made susla ;) Mamaji was soo angry but couldn't utter a word :)
