  1. I simply love Kathirikai Poriyal. When ever I visit my dear friend from Chennai here I demand she makes this with piping hot rice and Rasam just as you have mentioned. It just tastes so yummm. Such is the power of simple wholesome cooking. It always floors you and you cannot go on for long without craving for them. So sweetheart get my plate of rice, Rasam, pickle, papad and your delicious Kathirikai Poriyal ready, I am coming for lunch.
