proportionate) in my last post.

Mala, I think this is the first time for me here. First of all I liked your header.. It is sooo soothing. Next, I love mini idlis with sambar.. Never made them, but use to enjoy them in Chennai restraurants.. Should check in toronto, whether I can get a mini idli cooker. Happy New Year!!!
