  8. I am 84 and live in the US. I am from Palakkad. My wife used to make kurukku kalan and the shelf life is also good. I am going to try my hand on making this now. Thanks for the recipe.


  9. Thanks for the yummy recipe. This Recipe is similar to what my mother in law used to prepare. But she used to dry roast the cumin and fenugreek seeds. This is similar to Namboodiri preparation.


  10. Great job VEENA, Thank you for the recipe.
