Loved your blog. I made the Udipi Sambar as per your recipe and it turned out just like the one at the Udipi restaurant here in San Francisco bay area. Also made the fluffy idli and even that turned out great. Thank you so much for the great recipes.

I am a regular silent visitor and this veggie kootu was simply out of the world. With less masala ingredients, we all loved it so much.
