அகத்திக் கீரை | Sesbania grandliflora | अगस्ति

Two days at home, far away from PG, so instead of usual dosa/roti with dal that i make in PG, made agathi keerai pooris. How wonderful it would be if we had trains travelling at 400km per hour.

Guruji said sundaikayi is allowed in shaakvrat, so added that to moong dal. These are sundaikas that grow in village backyard and somehow not bitter.

Exception - Sundaikayi
