This is our 10 years of friendship (completed 10 years last month) which I would like to share it with you all. She is one of my care takers. When I started living in Chennai, she searched house for me, cleaned and completed everything for house warming…She never forget all our B’days, Wedding day or any family events, She call n wish wherever we are…Our friendship starts as neighbor in Chennai, but now she resides in Kerala her hometown. She is such a Lovely person, the whole family cares for us, worth publishing her tasty aviyal for you dudes. She sent the Adai and Aviyal recipe ingredients via mail, trying to reduce my lengthy post hereafter, so will publish Adai later… I adapted the gravy to suit our taste buds.
Wish our friendship stay forever.
