  1. Awesome recipies Harini! Everything looks delicious... Tried mint rice today and it came out really well and easy to make too... Waiting to try out the others one by one...

  2. btw, you've used channa dal in most of them... Is that the powder or the whole dal itself?

  3. @Aarthi - Thanks a lot!
    I use the actual dal and not the powder
