Hi Mala,

This is Latha Setlur. I am also an Hebbar Iyengar. I was really glad to see your site. Infact I already tried making your receipe of Athrasu and Kari Pudi. Both came out very well. Thanks for the same.

I wanted to know if you can post the receipe for Chitta Unde. Since my father's Varshabdika is approaching soon I thought I can make this for everybody. I hope you will post this receipe soon. Looking forward to hear from you.

Thanks a lot and a very good site.

I have tried every recipe for kobbari obattu on line and I am unable to make them crispy. I am also a hebbar Iyengar and I have had crispy ones in Mysore.
Tips are welcome and I will keep checking this blog for an answer.

You provided a delicious vegan recipe for broccoli fritters. You mention in your blog that it looks like a mini pancake. I also noted that it appears to be pancakes in the pictures you shared. I've never attempted to make vegan broccoli fritters, but after reading your blog, I'm curious to do so because I love pancakes, and the food you prepare looks like mini pancakes. Everyone, especially children, enjoys pancakes. The most popular type of street food in Indonesia is a pancake called martabak. Pancakes at Martabak Manis come in a variety of tastes. You can place orders for your friends and family members online as well.
