KARUVEPPILAI THOKKU
Few days back one of my friend made this karuveppilai thokku and when she visited me on the same day she packed me some karuvepillai thokku and it tasted awesome with plain rice and with Curd Rice too. Also this thokku goes well with dosa and chapathi too. It is perfect long travel too. As usual i noted down the recipe from and tried it on the very next day and it turned out like the same thokku which she has given me. So lets us learn today how to make karuveppilai Thokku.

Excellent thokku. We used to do in the same way. It is very good for health. Kariveppilai content lot if iron and other minerals. It has medicinal value. Keep rocking jey.
