    Hai, I'm a great fan of your blog. This poriyal came out really well. To match my family preference, instead of adding coconut, I added peanut powder and it was really yummy. Thanks for your 'Simple to Learn' Recipes. I read a lot of food blogs. But, when I have to try something new I always look up to your blog.

    Hello, I tried this but the onion got burned after I added the peerkangai and it was cooking. What exactly am I doing wrong?

      Cook on low heat. Sprinkle water if required though it is not necessary for peerkangai as it leaves water.
