1Hi. We are in second month of the new year and time is just flying by. Don’t you think ? Have you ever felt that your mind is blank? That there is nothing to say. I am feeling exactly that. I don’t know what to talk about. Maybe it is the weather that is fluctuating my mood.

2It is so hot even at 9 AM in the morning. Being in office we don’t realize it much but when we go out or during weekend is when we feel the heat. Today’s recipe has spices but it is not hot. It is the best side dish for Appams. A very simple yet delicious dish full of color and flavors.
