Mulaku Varutha Puli



After a dish from Karnataka, how about a traditional dish from Kerala? Yes, it is from proper Palakkad. Today, I am trying to reproduce the dish the way my mother used to make. It is a 5 minute curry with very little ingredients and tastes good with rice. It is almost like rasam with a little less effort.
