If you are in a hurry or if you need any quick side dish for pulav or rice..Then this is the answer..
I even loved to have this as it is in a bowl with a spoon..It is a kind of cooling and refreshing at the same time.Since there is no coconut in this you can have it as a salad..
I made it for lunch today along with Ennai Kathirikai(One of my favorite dish)..I will update the recipe of that tomorrow I think..
So hope you will enjoy this and let me know if you have any questions..So off you go to the step by step recipe..
