  4. I'm not a fan of mullangi and this is the only recipe I make/love with mullangi. I normally grate the vegetable and make poriyal with it.

  5. I have often held mullangi to be an ingredient for sambhar. Now it was relishing to make curry with it. But I used cabbage instead of onion ( as no onion/garlic)
