  50. Interesting....What does this dish go with? The usual sambar/rasam/thogaiyal? I'm not sure...very confused! Will it taste like sundal? (I'm a visitor from chennai and just going through your recipes)

    1. As the name says its just like poriyal, so serve as accompaniment for sambar rice or any kuzhambu or rasam :)
