Paruppu (Thuvar) Urandai Kulambhu

Apologies, Apologies and Apologies... You all know why, but am really sorry for just disappearing into thin air... Just that my inlaws had visited us here, then a brief trip to India and after that I kept travelling and work kept me busy, couldnt come back to blogging... But again thank you guys so much for stopping by here, mailing me and checking on with me in Orkut, it really meant and means a lot!!! Suddenly I realized I had been long away from blogging now that couldnt keep myself away anymore ha ha ha!!!



About Paruppu Urandai Kulambhu we all have made or had this at one point of time for sure... This time when I was back home at India happened to visit my Mom's friend place, not to mention she is an amazing cook... While talking she asked me what I really wished to have I had a big array of things lol!!! Then Aunty mentioned about Paruppu Urandai Kulambhu, she promised she would make it along with me and also teach a few more of her traditional recipes... Know what happiness found no bounds or limits... In just 35-40 mins she was done with lunch and I was wondering how and what had happened all the time, she was like a dynamite, walking all around in her kitchen she kept us engaged talking all the while and at the same time lunch was ready boom!!! This is totally her recipe and I would definitely make this my Mom's way and post it shortly...
