பருப்பு உருண்டை மோர்குழம்பு புதுவிதமாக இருக்கின்றது.

எங்கள் வீட்டில் வடையினை தான் மோர்குழம்பில் போட்டு செய்து இருக்கின்றேன்.

வடையினை போடுவதற்கு பதிலாக இப்படி செய்தால் கண்டிப்பாக உடலிற்கு நல்லது தான்...

அதே போல,ரசவடையினை தவிர இப்படி பருப்பு உருண்டை ரசமும் நான் கேள்விபடாத ஒன்று...

நல்ல குறிப்பு

Menaga Sathia  – (September 15, 2009 at 6:42 AM)  

என் பேவரிட் டிஷ்.ரசத்தில் உருண்டை போட்டு செய்வது புதுசா இருக்கு.செய்து பார்க்கிறேன்.
