Kadaindha Paruppu

Written by Ponnarasi

"A friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out" - Walter Winchell

"Friendship is always a sweet responsibility, never an opportunity" - Kalil Gibran

"If you judge people, you have no time to love them" - Mother Teresa

"Grief can take care of itself but to get the full value of joy you must have somebody to divide with it" - Mark Twain

A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and can sing it to you when you have forgotten the words.

When you speak everyone hears, friend listens to what you say, best friend listens to what you don't say.

A simple friend thinks the friendship over when you have an argument. A real friend knows that it is not a friendship until after you have had a fight.

Friendship is the golden thread that ties all the hearts together.

If all my friends were to jump off a bridge, I wouldn't follow...

                              I'd be at the bottom to catch them...

Strangers are just friends waiting to happen...

When I registered I just told in one line that I like friendship. I didn't even know about the guestbook then. Now, that I got so many friends, I wanted to write more about friendship; picked some quotes which I like very much. 

from       me        to           all my friends...

                                          and friends waiting to happen...

    I remember India(Coimbatore)and my home after seeing your pics and presentation/notes.
    I like the your notes saying how it should be eaten, not to mix the whole thing and kadaiyara instructions.
    Great memorable, tasty recipe. Thanks for sharing.

      Thanks for your comments and suggestion, Abi. As I followed what Amma told I didn't try this. Will try the next time…Actually, a friend from Andhra told that she would roast toor dhal, too…keep remembering, that too…

      Thank you, viji…It's kollu(horse gram), I think..'Coz the term kanam payaru is not in practice in our place…I didn't mention that in the recipe because we don't find it over here..2 friends has been discussing abt that in our site..they found that 'whole brown lentils' available in American stores are nothing but horse gram…have to look for it….it is very tastier…slight variation in the preparation, I think, to be confirmed with Amma….
