It has been a strange week so far. When the weather was bright and sunny, I was in no mood to cook and click. But when I cooked to click, the weather turned gloomy and dull, which means not much cooking or clicking was done this week 🙁 But I made sure I had a dish ready for ‘Cooking from Cookbook Challenge. I actually made it last week along with the mixed dal sambar.

Today’s dish is from a Telugu cooking show. The combination of pepper and coconut sounded interesting and so I tried it right away. It is definitely a different and delicious combination.
