Puli kulambu

If u r a few extra pounds person,i am sure u have a mom who cooks the best and feeds u extra…I am still roaming around with my extra pounds,cos of my mom..Needless to say,as many knows she cooks so quickly and pamper the place like anything,i need another blog to post her recipes..But I never tried to be on her shoes..She gives distinct taste to every dish…My most favourite dish she makes is Puli kulambu..She serves me with potato podimas and parupu thovayal..for which i cud die for…

Yeah..If anyone asks me which is the last food i wud like to eat,it wud be this meal…I swear..Everyone in my family knows hw i am crazy abt puli kulambu,I had it every day when i was pregnant..Pls try and enjoy..
