Beautiful pics!! I wish I can have a taste of this podi annam
Congrats to your son for successfully running the marathon. How old is he?

When I read Gopi had run the half marathon, I assumed Gopi was your son...Iam sorry about that. My son has just turned 3 in Nov. He is going to school but home most of the days as he falls sick quite often...His name is Aadarsh. What is your son's name?

Dear Vineela,

I haven't seen you in a long time! Like BDSN, I think the photos are lovely. I didn't know what vamu ginjalu was -- I looked it up in a hindi translation site. Ajwain seeds?

Never knew you could make a podi of horsegram -- I use it in rasam when I have a cold -- from Indosungod's recipe.

Hope you're well!

Hi Vineela, the podi made out of horsegram…different and interesting. Being a lover of Andhra meals, we keep trying so many podis to eat as a mudda with rice. Your horsegram podi with vamu ie ajwain looks healthy…I love the flavour of ajwain and look forward to tasting it in a podi. Horsegram is much advised by my gym centre as it helps in reducing weight :). Your mudda looks so good – ready to eat!
