  14. An all time comfort kuzhambu at my place. If you happen to drop in on a day that I am lazy even to cook dhal, you might end up being fed this and most likely vendaikkai because I keep stock of them like forever and they are the quickest to cook!

  20. All About okra nutrition. Okra is a popular vegetable of the housewives. The interesting thing is that it contains more nutrients for good health, such as fiber, mucilage, vitamin A, vitamin B6, vitamin C, niacin, calcium, potassium, magnesium, folic acid, iron.Very good for health.
