NattuKozhi Kuzhambu - Guest Post by Radhika Thirumoorthi / Birthday Celebration Post !

Hello Buddies...

Though social networking shares the two sides of coin, for me, it's always on the positive side. It motivated me when I am down ( by seeing lots of my friend's recipes ), it taught me the world of cuisines and techniques and importantly, introduced me lots of friends who shares the same passion of mine ( FOOD ). Likewise, happened to meet my today's guest in a Facebook food group who loves cooking a lot and I  always wonder about her passion in cooking at her early age. Now, she is one of my best buddy and happy to share her authentic recipe on my blog. This is one of my favorite recipe of her and the word, nattukozhi always reminds me of her kuzhambu and waiting for a big day to taste her cooking and esp this kuzhambu... When I asked her to do a guest post on my page, with no second thought she said yes and to my surprise, she forwarded my favorite recipe... Thanks a lot dear Radhika :)

Her style of cooking used to be authentic, perfect and truly tempting recipes. I am a big fan of her non-veg recipes and apart from that, love her authentic Arisi parupu satham recipe which was a huge hit among my family members..

It's a special day ( Birthday ) for my friend Radhika, so taking a lovely chance to make her birthday more special by posting this mouthwatering recipe on her birthday. Happy Birthday Radhika :) I wish all your dreams come true in the following years :) Enjoy ur day and have a blast :)
