Aarai Keerai Masiyal | Tamil Brahmin Style Keerai Recipe

Aarai Keerai Masiyal
Aarai Keerai Masiyal
There can never be a day without keerai/ greens in my parents place. Amma loves vegetables and she always make sure that we get a dose of veggies as part of our everyday meals. I have picked this good habit of eating greens from her. Be it veg or non veg recipes there will always be vegetables as sides in the form of poriyals or frys. I love Amma's version of keerai she makes so many varieties that I never fail to miss out when ever I come home and also share them with all of you here. This Arai keerai masiyal is a mix of dal and greens together with a lovely flavour that it can be made as a main curry to go with white rice and sides like poryial or fry.

I hope my reviews and thoughts on Dell Venue tab has helped you get a fair idea of the tablet and if you ask me if I would recommend it to someone, definitely yes for a first time tablet user. If you use any higher end tablets like ipad / apple products what Dell venue offers may not be up to par with the leading tablets but that does not mean that the Dell is any inferior. In terms of price and user friendly experience Dell is a great tablet that must be explored. With a 7" you sure can carry it along with you everywhere. Fits into any medium sized handbag and is definitely on the go. Hope this review is of use to you and help you decide on your decision to get a tablet.


Please note - all reviews thoughts, experiences, photographs shared concerning Dell are my own, I have taken care and time to understand the tablet on my own and with no external help.
