Sorry for being away from blog for so long,thank you for the messages and enquires....I am back..i will post many recipes this July (hopefully- fingers crossed)and at least i should clear all my draft posts soon :).....So,stay tuned  for lots of best recipes...This kulambu i tried ,since one of my friend said its a good substitute for ayeerai meen kulambu...After i made the vazhaapoo bhajji ,it vanished so soon...I didnt find any bitter taste with the flower...Of course,I deveined them the precious night and kept in fridge,so the morning cooking was done easily...
