Kavitha's Poondu Kolambu

Written By FewMinute Wonders on Friday, April 4, 2008 | 11:18 AM

I added this recipe to my blog because this is one delicious Poondu kolambu that our friend Kavitha used to make for us on demand and we loved to eat it with rice any time. It reminds me of the good times when we met for potlucks, celebrations and conversations in San Diego. Its very simple, delicious comes with good memories and hence makes me want to prepare it all the time.
