Mythreyi, the pongal looks good. I had this once from Banglore.

Thanks for the comments.

After reading your comments I decided why not to prepare something again.

I am planning for chicken curry tomorrow and I would like to start with your recipe for "Chicken pepper chops". Do not know how it will be, but I am going to paste the pictures of it for sure.

Hope the chef's again back. :)
