  18. Varsha ,
    The sambhar powder used here is home made and is different from the store brought ones...U can replace it by 1 tsp red chilli powder and 1/2 tsp daniya powder.

  29. Hmm... Even in my family, no one cooks kovakkai. In fact, when my grandmother came here and saw us buying kovakkai she started yelling at us for paying money to buy a useless vegetable. Then, she tried it and loved it, too! One of my favorites. :)
