எங்கள் வீட்டிலும் இப்படி தான் இஞ்சி + பூண்டு சேர்த்து அரைப்பேன்...மிகவும் சுவையாக இருக்கும்..

ஆனால், புளியினை இதுவரை சேர்த்து இல்லை...கண்டிப்பாக செய்து பார்க்கின்றேன்.. நன்றி ப்ரியா

Madam, i am siva from qatar. Whenever i make coconut chutney i will not satisfy because of raw smell (Pacha vadai). Finally i tried this method, it comes very nice. Thanks. Onething clarify for me. Is it required to add Asafetida powder while thalipu and is it required to roast the pottukadalai before grinding?
