Now coming over to tried and tasted, I have bookmarked so many recipes from so many blogs..I do try one or two recipes here and there..and most of the time I do not have pics :-( but whatever I manage to take I'm going to post them. 

When Madhu from Madhu's Food Journal posted Aromatic Podis I knew I'm going to try those.  I have tried her Karivepillai(Curry leaves) Podi and it was so good...am going to prepare my next batch soon.  Thanks Madhu for sharing :-)
