    Not sure.. Coincidence I just made this today with kadalai paruppu, normally I make your way exactly ..May be this is pudalangai season. I just add 1/2 tsb chilly powder and 1/4 tsb turmeric . Soak and cook 3/4th side of the channa dhal and then add to pudalangai , since that veggie gets cooked fast.

    Answering anietha’s question, if you are in US – Bay area then this is available in most of the Indian stores. This is seasonal veggie like Drumstick, only comes at certain times.


    NB : I have some times noted that few pudalangai is very very bitter ( worse that bitter guard) not sure how this can happen , but atleast 3 times I had faced this issue, so now when its raw , before purchase I just eat a bit of the raw one and see the taste and buy. My mom was also shocked to see bitter pudalangai in US as she has never seen a bitter one in India. we had to throw the complete dish out.
