    i have always heard tha tcleaning this is such a pain, so never bothered to buy. Next time you make this pls call me over 🙂

    Hi All,
    Thanks for your lovely comments. Lakhmi recently moved to Kerala so that explains the source of vazhapindi 🙂 You can expect more of nadan dishes in the future..

    Kairali Sisters, Pranis Kitchen and Julie,
    I guess you can find vazhapindi in the Chinese stores here..
