Karunai Kizhangu Karakuzhambu

             At the time when i was newly married, i am poor in cooking.
Few things which i can make are rice, dal, egg and some stir fry veggie's...

After a year only i realised that i have to learn cooking, relative's  used to critisis me for lack of my knowledge in cooking but they never helped in teaching me.  I never mind...

only reason i got fell in love with this culinary art is my husband...Yeah he is a Foodie...He loves to eat varities, a perfect combination and he appreciate the recipe which really deserve the appreciation...

Then after a year of marriage i slowly started to learn cooking through watching TV programs about cooking and also got few cookery books...First i learnt different varieties of chicken..i have to thanks to Chef Dr.Damu, i am a fan of his cooking programs, then slowly moved to Internet search for recipes...and now into blogging.

I like Yam alot, usually we can make masiyal, stir fry, chips, kola and so many varities...
Today lunch was Karunaikizhangu kara kuzhambu  and Plantain stem stir fry...a good combintion of simple lunch...
