It tastes great with rice, idly and dosa.
I should mention that it will be a treat for pregnant women with its tangy, spicy, mild sweet taste and also with its health benefits too.
Being pregnant want to try some healthy and at the same time tangy, spicy gravy which suits my taste buds so made it for my Sunday lunch, had it with hot steaming rice along with papad.
