This kootu is not avial and tastes different from that.This is a nice accompaniment for rice. This is one of my mom's staple recipe that we love. My brother asks 2nd and 3rd servings if she makes this one. I try hard to recreate it, but she has a magic in her hand which turns it delicious, that magic is Love!
