Pepper Kurma .



This recipe is a favourite one for me and i found this in Lakshmiammal’s blog. I like this blog and the blogger as i find a unique taste in her writings and skill . i had tried this earlier and i made it again today with a slight modification . It suits well for Idly/ Dosai. Those who want that non vegetarian or spicy taste can well go ahead and with the richness of pepper we can get a different taste.
