Hey Honey, u r simply Superb. Your blog is my inspiration. My husband likes Vendakka curry very much. I make a slightly different version.Anyways I will try out this one too.
WITHOUT ANY DOUGHT I CAN SAY " UR BLOG IS THE BEST".
I had already recomended ur blog to my friends and relatives.
Ur blog has A-Z cooking of Kerala Cuisine.
Will be very useful for the newer generations who entirely depend on fast food and does not know about cooking.

Keep it up and keep on posting new new items. All the very best.
