Thank you for your kind feedback and comments on my site.
Regarding “Veppelai Katti”, as you know, it is prepared with fresh lemon/Narthai Tree leaves, I never tried this recipe. because I do not get the fresh leaves in the City. But when I was young, my grand mother used to prepare this just plucking the leaves from our Backyard where lots of Lemon / Narthai trees were available.
I enjoyed this with Curd Rice.
I find the following recipe more or less similar to my grandma’s recipe. Hope it will be of useful to you.

I’m Guyanese and will try your potato peas kurma tonight! Will the taste be any different if I substitute the peas with Chana?
Yes. The taste will be different. Chana is heavier than peas and need more spices.
I have a general question to you.how can we preserve broken coconut wen there is no refrigerator?
If you apply little salt, it will stay good for few days. However, you cannot preserve it if you keep it outside.
I have tried 3 of your recipes and they have been just awesone; Thank you so much for sharing.
