    Thanks for the Corn-keerai recipe……..I tried it with Sweet Corn and Palak and my younger son finally ate Palak and appreciated the dish,( which I had been trying to coax him to do for years now)- he would not even look at a palak dish all these years. Thanks ma’am!

  2. Thanks a lot for the corn-soppu recipe…its a super super success!!
