Pudalangai kootu

I had this kootu in my friend ‘B’s place,she made this with her yummy tangy,spicy kaara kuzhambu so this one made an awesome combo with its mild and flavorful taste! We make it usually with moong dal and sambar powder. But this is so easy and so different from the usual recipe, so obviously I loved it. So tried it.

Pudalangai kootu

One sad news Crying I dropped my camera down and my lens which I use for taking step wise picture is stuck…I have to take it to Nikon service centre and get it done,which will not happen in recent days. May take more than 2 weeks. Still I have another lens,so hope fully I will post some recipes but not sure about stepwise pictures!  Even this was lying in my drafts as this is a simple and boooooring recipeSigh.

And since most of you all are going on break and holidays,I am wishing you all bloggers and my readers A HAPPY NEW YEAR!  Wishing each and every one a Prosperous New year!!
