The reason for the long gap is absolutely my laziness...I can say some lame excuses like the thing happened in the past few days like our Long nine days Florida vacation..My Dad's Visit..But I wont..see how nice I am ..ha ha..

Watching a game,Eating a Non veg,Having some beer is the perfect Sunday for my hubby Senthil..So most of the Sundays I will make some some non veg items..This Sunday I made this thokku.. Even though if for any reason I couldn't able to make non veg,he will have his beer even with pasta and watch the match..If I said like 'Senthil pasta wouldn't go with the beer..he used to laugh at me and say 'how come you know? the reason is I don't drink beer..These are all common things right ha..ha..
