During my school days,vallyamma used to make this for us( three sisters), for our lunch, at school when we open the lunchbox..the aroma of this curry just spreads and my classmates even asks me to share it.... When she prepares any curry , mainly non-veg curries, it was like heaven.. the taste will be up to the mark.. that delicious...
