kovakka and urulakizhangu makes a wonderful combination; thoran looks appetizing and must be great with some ghee rice!!

Vineetha, LOve ur Click. Thoran looks inviting. I love this subzi..and My MIL preapres it this way but without the potatoes.I'm sure adding potatoes would only enhance this dish.

Its ok, as and when you get time you can visit my blog., It does get hard with the little one. In fact I find it so hard when I want to visit other blogs and give my feedback as my son hardly takes naps.lol.
