Vazhaipoo Udiri Kola

Hi Supermoms,

The greatness of Indian cooking is that every region and community  has it's own  method of cooking a vegetable  using  different spices that is indigenous to that particular region. I have earlier shared the Tam Brahm Style of making Vazhaipoo Paruppu Usili. Today I am sharing the Chettinad Style of Vazhaipoo Paruppu usili . It is known as Udiri Kola . 

This is a delicious dish that can be served as a side dish to rice . Tomato Rasam is a great accompaniment to this dish.
