    Hi Mam

    I visited your site today and tried oats kozhukattai, which came out very well. My hubby who does not eat oats too liked it. thank you
    Keep posting interesting recipes


  2. Hi
    I tried this wheat rava sweet pongal and it came out well. But I feel that it was not with different taste or to say, I could not get the flavour of wheat eventhough I fried it well. Any tips?

  3. Can we buy Wheat Rava, does this comes in a packet or can tell me the seperate proportionate of wheat and rava

  4. Madam

    All your receipes are very good & well detailed. It helps even for a novice like me to try at cooking.

    Can I follow the same method to prepare Sarkarai Pongal (using rice, which is prepared in Perumal temples)? What is green gram dhal? Is this same as Yellow gram dhal (paasi paruppu)?

  5. Fantastic recipe. I could eat that whole day. Simple yet rich taste.
