This is my first blog and I would like to share a simple recipe. We had gone to the- 'pick your own vegies' farm. It was soo exciting because it brought back memories of buying vegetables in the markets back in India :) The vegeis were soo fresh and tender. The kids loved it there. Came back home and made this yummy dish! The aroma of the seasonings made us even more hungry and we enjoyed it with avarakai(hyacinth beans) sambhar and hot steamed rice. Yummmmm!!!!

Red chili powder - 1tsp
Coriander powder - 2tsp
Roasted split gram or Potukadalai - 1Tbsp (coarsely ground)
