    Another of my favourites - but I have had to adapt to no curry leaves here in Scotland (though can occasionally find dried version - nowhere nearly as good!). YAM xx

  2. Hari OM.
    Thank you.
    Yes, it's really very true that some Indian veggies or spices are difficult to get abroad. For curry leaves substitute you can use dried curry powder, to enhance the taste.

  3. I am very fond of semia uppma which I prepare myself often. Veggie uppma is also very good. My wife prepares it often.

    1. Thank you.
