Oorundai or Vada or Pakoda Kuzhambu

     My first try of this recipe was unforgettable in my life time. As we need to prepare vada and curry seperately, the preparation of this gravy took hell lot of time. That too i tried this recipe when i was in 9th month of my pregnancy. I struggled a lot and even thought why i have choosen such a risky recipe which made me sooooooooo tired. But when i saw the outcome, it was toooooooooo yummy and more-over my hubby enjoyed this recipe which made me to be cherished. :) This is what i want :) I do have another version of this recipe which is bit "Hot and Sour", will try to post it ASAP.

FYI, Now if i prepare this dish, it takes very minimal time to end up. :)
