Arusuvai surprise Ingredient

Arusuvai is the brain child of Lathamma and Lakshmi
of The Yum Blog.In Lathamma's own words,Arusuvai
is a
Arusuvai Friendship Chain is about sending along a surprise
ingredient as a gift to your friends for them to prepare something
tasty with it, share the recipe, and pass on other surprise
ingredients to more people. Arusuvai means six tastes
(aru=six, suvai=taste) in Tamizh and is used to refer for
Tasty preparation with six tastes - inippu/ thithippu (sweet),
orappu/ karam (hot), kassappu (bitter) , pulippu (sour),
uppu(salt), tuvarpu (tastes that one gets in raw leaves).
When Lathamma started the arusuvai friendship chain
I was an non- blogger then but eagerly visited all the blogs.
I never thought that I would also be a part of this beautiful
chain.Ramya of Mane Adige has sent across the surprise
ingredient.It is bit easy to find the ingredient as it is in
our daily breakfast table in the form of chutney....
It is Channa Dahlia ( pottukadalai in tamil).
Thanks Ramya for sending me an easy ingredient.
Along with the surprise ingredient Ramya is so sweet
to send me yummy recipe with
channa dhalia and a beautiful book as a friendship token.
If there is anyone in US and like to receive surprise ingredient
from me mail me kamalagk2000@gmail.com
