  1. lovely pic and the recipe is great. Need to look how to make srilankan curry powder

  2. Thanks Preeti; the Srilankan Curry powder was not home-made, got it from someone who travelled there. It is shade darker than and has flavours of the traditional sambhar powder but with curry leaves added in plus another flavour am not able to identify. Will search and update.

  3. Never tried this one sounds great... Nice click..
