    Dear Pras,
    My MIL used to make it.
    Grind 1/4 cup each of raw rice & parboiled rice with 1/2 cup of grated coconut as stiff as possible. Add salt & little jeera.
    Pat it on a cloth as thin as possible & deep fry. Try it & tell me. Then I will post it.
    Love,
    Chithra.

    Dear Chithra,
    good morning.
    I have 2 queries , one is - can I freeze puli inji (got good tender ones, so am asking)?
    Two, how do you slice almonds etc., do you have a small slicer for that?

    Dear Varloo,
    1` - Make & freeze puli inji in ziplock covers in freezer, but not just inji.
    2 - I blanche & peel; the slice it lengthwise with a knife - no other method !
    Love,
    Chithra.

    Dear Uma,
    The varakarisi preparation - soaking etc has started ! It takes time for soaking, frying etc.
    Watch out for the recipe which I will be posting next week !
    Love,
    Chithra.

    Dear Chitra madam

    I heard that normal venthayam (fenugreek) can be used to make kootu/ side-dish etc. Can you please post some recipe on that? Won't the venthayam make the dish bitter?

    Thanks in advance.

    Love
    Rathi
