How was your weekend? we had a super fun one, ate out with friends and slept early too, all in all relaxing too. Since its Monday and Onam I was all set for an Onam recipe but things changed as today one of our neighbours invited us for Onam Sadhya, so I am all excited about the feast. Happy Onam to all my readers and friends, since there is no Onam recipe thought of sharing a post from the draft. Vazhakhai poriyal/ stir fry is a simple vegetarian side for white rice and curry, a bit spicy and crisp on the outside. I love to have this along with sambar / curd rice but you can almost make this for any curry. Did you all notice the new header? ;-) I was bored of the old one so changed it.
