A traditional kerala dish with shallots,tamarind and coconut as main ingrediants
This is one of my favourite dish from my Mom.She used to make theeyal with shallots and bitterguard. But I like ulli theeyal more than paavakka theeyal(Bitterguard).Ulli theeyal tastes more good for next day.So while making,please don’t forget to keep one bowl for next day 🙂
