This is also my favourite item.

Please add this one also in the list of pending items, to be supplied to GOPU.

இதில் செய்யப்படும் காரக்கறி எனக்கு என்னவோ அதிகமாகப் பிடிப்பதில்லை.

பச்சைமிளகாய், கருவேப்பிலை, வெங்காயம், கடுகு, உளுந்தம்பருப்பு தாளித்து, நிறைய எண்ணெய் ஊற்றி செய்யப்படும் உ.கி. பொடிமாஸ் என்றால் அது தனி ஜோர் தான்.

குழம்புமா உப்புமா [பச்சை மாவுப் பொடி உப்புமா] மாதிரி அப்படியே எடுத்துக்கொண்டு போய் முழுவதுமாகக் காலி செய்துவிடுவேன்.

Thanks for sharing .... Mira.
