    We call it pindi pulihaara. We used o eat this dish until we were in our teens. My mother used to make this. I cant remember why we stopped making it. Also when we used to make we never added fenugreek in our pulihaara. The rule in our house was, and even in my cooking, is that fenugreek should always go with something that is naturally sour. Rest of the dishes had to contend with only the pappu popu.

    In addition to the above its anyway a nice site with a lot of dishes. There are lot of variations. I am a single man in my late 30's and cooking is one of the many activities that i m very passionate about. My mother used to make a lot of pickles whihc were very tasty. She is no more now. And i dont ask for recipes from my relatives because they will either tell me that they will be send me a small bottle of pickle or give me an unsolicited advice to get married.

    Having said the above I would also like to add some recipes. I will try to see if can make videos and add these. These shall be geared towards those people who are single like me and are interested to know about making dishes in a jiffy. I have been able to arrive at shortcut methods to prepare pappu, pulusu, koora, pachchallu. I make these dishes in the 30-40 mins slot that is available for me in the morning while i am completing the other usual chores.
