This dish is a must in every Chettinad house in South India.I've tasted it many times and very much wanted to try it myself but as it requires soaking time I always postponed.It was raining for the past two days and children wanted something hot.I searched my recipe collection and followed my chettinad friend's.I relished it throughly.
